Thanks to everyone who attended a very successful and spirit-filled (albeit initially postponed due to snow) Solstice Drum and Potluck event on Wednesday, December 22nd! It was lovely to see families come out, as well as old and new friends, and even some brand new rhythm enthusiasts. Not only did we drum, shake, clap and rattle this year, we also sang and danced - wow! what a joyous occasion... The rhythms, as always, were as diverse as the crowd, ranging from trance to fireworks! And of course the food was scrumptious - have I mentioned how very much I enjoy a good potluck feast?! Thanks to the generous contributions of the participants, we have been able to make a donation towards providing clean water for 5 families for 20 years in Tanzania through the wonderful organization "GlobalGiving". Looking forward to Spring Equinox!
And in the meantime, don't forget:
New Session of Drumming Classes, for both beginners and intermediate/advanced, starts January 10th through Courtenay Recreation (250 338 1000 to register) and January 17th at the Fallen Alders on Royston Road (register at email@example.com or at the door - beginners 5:15 - 6:15 pm, advanced 6:30 - 7:30 pm).
