Our Winter Solstice Celebration 2016

BSEC Winter Solstice 2016

In times of darkness, we celebrate the Winter Solstice together to welcome the return of the light. Our inter-generational event focused on ancient South American civilizations and how they honored the sun. DuPree led the musical part of the event and the children answered questions about the seasons and helped distribute evergreens and welcoming the sun. The solstice the time to send wishes of peace and light into the world, particularly in times of great need, like now.
Big thanks to all who helped make this event such a success, and to all who brought food, came early and left late to help set up and break down at the end of the day.
Below you will find some pictures of the event:

Once a year something deliciously fun happens at BSEC. Our Pledge Dinner, which is an event full of humor, surprises and most of all, community. This year’s Pledge Dinner, last October 28th, was no exception. Thanks to the beautiful organizational efforts of Vandra Thorburn and Damal Edmond, last Friday was full of warm conversations, yummy food and whimsical costumes. Our leader Jone Lewis also managed to write a short play that punctuated the evening with laughter, but that also brought into focus our mission, and how important each individual contribution of effort, care and financial donations are to keeping our society alive. Thank you all who attended and gave of their time for helping make the evening such a success!
