Merry Solstice!

Brenda, Paul & Kat
The day after Winter Solstice, Kat, Paul & Brenda Germain dropped off our annual Food Drive donation to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC. We exceeded last year's donation by 27 pounds! This year we donated $175 worth of food.  That's 134 pounds, enough for 112 meals. Thank you to everyone who donated time, money or food! Atheists doing good because it is the HUMAN thing to do.

Food Drive donations next to the Tree of Knowledge.
On December 18th we held our annual Solstice Celebration at the Germain residence. Our celebration was an intimate Pastafarian repast complete with homemade spaghetti and garlic bread. This year's Tree of Knowledge featured forbidden fruit for the picking (apple ornaments filled with tasty candy.) Goody bags filled with MASH Ft. Bragg calendars, notepads and more were handed out to everyone and this year's door prizes were MASH mugs and a MASH insulated lunch bag. It was decided to apply for a table at 2017 Dogwood Festival, so our application was sent in. A day filled with lively conversation, laughter and camaraderie.
