Hello and Merry Meet, fellow Pagans and interested persons :)
I have been very excited and pleased to see many new people join up on the Long Beach Pagan Meetup group website recently.
If you are not already a member of the group, I heartily encourage you to join at the link at the bottom of this message. So far it's been an interesting group, and I hope you'll come with us to our September Meetup at Garden Of Pan in Downtown Long Beach next week Thursday. The group atmosphere, like the cafe's, is relaxed and fun, with like-minded and intelligent individuals coming together for Pagan fellowship and the free exchange of ideas.
If you have not RSVP'd for this meetup, please take a moment to do so now so I know whether or not to expect you. You can RSVP "No", or "Maybe", if you can't make it or you're not sure, so please take that quick and painless moment and give me an idea of who's coming. Thanks a lot.http://pagan.meetup.com/962/events/5070084/
It's been a while since I posted a message to this community, and I'm sorry. I try to keep in touch more often to encourage conversation and to raise interest in the meetups. I've been rather busy with out of town visitors and interesting activities which I'd love to share with you at the Meetup. It would be great for you to share your recent activities with us at the Meetup also, if you would like.
I've also recently had some thoughts about outings that I'd love to go on that are more or less Pagan themed (although some are not specifically so), and I'd love to run past the members the idea of multiple meetup type activities throughout the month that people can come to if they want to. Of course no activities have required attendence here at the Long Beach Pagan Meetup group, but the more people who participate, the better the event is likely to turn out to be.
Bring your outing or activity ideas with you to this coming Meetup, as well as any ideas for Meetup locations. I love sharing my favorite places with the group, but I'd love to find the new places that you know of as well.
Also if you have a favorite Pagan book or topic that you'd like to discuss, by all means bring it; we'd love to hear about it.
In the past, members have asked to get together for ritual purposes. I would like to discuss this topic further at next week's Meetup.
Ok, well that's enough of a novel to write today. If you have any questions for the group, check out our Message Board on the group site. As always, contact me directly with any other questions or problems you may have. And feel free to invite other people you think might enjoy the group. See you next Thursday!
