Red Oak Grove welcomes all to their family-friendly and enjoyable events. Here is a little of what you can look forward to:
Connect with your Spiritual Side With Our Druid Ritual
We’ll purify ourselves, Open the Gates between the Worlds, honor the Three Kindred and call upon the ancient Gods and Goddesses of the Druids. We will then heap upon Them our gifts and praises and let Them reciprocate by sending Their Blessings down to us. The Deity of the occasion is Rhiannon and appropriate Praise offerings to Her are anything that reminds you of nurturing and abundance – from a baby rattle to a bottle of beer!
Learn Something at Our Workshop:
Sigil Design with Bridget: Sigils are symbols used for particular magical purposes, modernly used across many practices. In this workshop, we will talk about quick and easy ways to create our own sigils tailored to specific situations and needs. Bridget will bring some whiteboards and markers along. Attendees might want paper or something to record their ideas on.
Bring Bagels, Cinnamon Buns, Breakfast Bars, Cereal & Milk, Donuts, OJ and other juices, Coffee, Tea, Hot Cocoa, Cold Milk, Bloody Marys (!) , Mimosas (!) And anything else you think humans would enjoy in the late morning on a Lazy Saturday!
Fabulous 'Thanksgiving' Feast
We will end a glorious day with a glorious Feast! Red Oak Grove will supply Roast Turkey, Stuffing and Gravy. We invite our guests to contribute any side-dishes they like (e.g.: Salads, Cranberry Sauce, Breads, Desserts, etc.)
Go here to register for the Pot Luck: https://m.signupgenius.com/#!/showSignUp/70a0c4dafa62aa1fd0-fall. (Otherwise, we might end up with 40 cans of Cranberry Sauce! ;-)
(To cut down on waste and dish-washing, please bring your own plate, bowl, cup & utensils. Thank you!)
A big part of the spirit of the Harvest concerns generosity and sharing. As part of ADF and Red Oak Grove’s commitment to public service, a donation box will be available at our events, to be taken to a local Food Bank for the benefit of hungry families. Your donations are greatly appreciated!
Do you make a mean pie?! Enter it in our Pie Competition and maybe take home a prize!
