The USU Pagan Alliance presents “Wicca 101″ on 01 October · 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm at the Merrill-Caizer Library. Stay tuned for room number.
Learn about the Wiccan beliefs and misconceptions.
This discussion group is for anyone who want to learn about
what Wicca is truly about, and also for those more familiar with Wiccan or Pagan practices to join in the discussion.
Come visit with all us cool pagans at citrus and sage from 11 am to 1 pm on Saturday, September 25th. There will be a bit of a business/ announcement meeting at the beginning but no lesson is planned. time to chill.
So meeting went well yesterday. The statesman seemed honestly excited about us, and got some good information about who and what we are.
It has been decided that we will help with National Coming out day and do a carnival booth, still need good ideas for activities and everyone to sign up for a shift on Oct 11th. The event runs from 9am until 2pm. A mandatory National Coming Out Day Committee meeting on Wednesday, September 22 from 5-6.30pm. If at least one representative from your group can attend that meeting-It is very doubtful I will be able to make this so i need a volunteer to go! . Set up will be performed communally between 8-10am. We will need people to sign up to fill all the times if possible I will do my best to come up with a sign up sheet and post it here somehow. We will set up with a booth where we have a carnival-esque game. Tickets will be given away by all the game booths for a chance to win a raffle at the end of the day.
We are going to do cupcakes on Oct. 28th. and decorating them and baking them the Wednesday night before (the 27th). We can either do this all at my house or you guys can each bake a dozen and then bring them over to decorate and we can watch a movie or something. I think $2 per cupcake is fair. I’ve never done a bake sale so I don’t know for sure. then maybe do 2 for $3? We will run from about 10 am to 3 pm.
Next Saturday-9/25 will be Witch’s Tea. We will just meet and chat. there is no lesson planned. We will meet at Citrus and Sage Cafe at Noon and chill until we are tired of each other. It’s a good time to bring friends or people curious that have questions too. I (Kassie) may not be there as it is my wedding anniversary.
October 2nd Anya has volunteered to do a class on Wicca, it’s history and practice.
October 15th or 16th we will have our first Pagan Movie Night, so we need to think of a good one. This event will be open to all, we will try to have it on campus, like upstairs in the student club center (pretty sure they have a big tv up there). It was suggested we do a fact or fiction type thing with the movies and help dispel myths even though it’s a fun movie. Suggest a show and I can get it on Netflix or see if I have it.
It’s been suggested that we move weekly meetings to possibly Friday nights around 7 pm. It might work better for people that work Saturdays or need Saturdays for family or such. I need everyone’s input on this before we make it official so either talk to me at meeting or send me an email.
I think that is all for now..Please remember to submit your Member bios!! Feel free to use an alias here as well. If you don’t specify then we will just use your first name and last initial.
Thanks all! Bless.
