Piedmont Pagan Pride Day will be hosting a fundraising event at Aries Moon Mystical Gifts in Lenoir, NC (map below) called Desserts and Divinations on June 3rd from 3:30 PM to 9:30 PM! We’ll be offering pastries and other scrumptious desserts, as well as tarot readings (and possibly some other types of readings) from several of our community’s gifted readers. Our pastries will be individually priced, while the readings will be $20 for 15-minute readings! All proceeds will benefit Piedmont Pagan Pride Day! We look forward to seeing you at the event and sharing our talents with you, both in the kitchen and in the cards!
RSVP on Facebook at the below Event link or just stop by!
My name is Cameryn Rhosyn, and I’m heading up the Piedmont Pagan Pride Day 2017 Social Media Team (wow, that’s a mouthful). This year, the team and I are beginning a new initiative called Community Spotlights. This initiative will be primarily hosted on our PPPD Blog and reposted to our Facebook Page, and it will include posts that highlight and show appreciation for community groups, creators, vendors, volunteers, and others who make Piedmont Pagan Pride Day the magical event that it is.
Throughout 2017, we will be uploading guest-authored posts, created by leaders in our community and our volunteers, that discuss events, places, businesses, groups, and other pagan-friendly features of our surrounding area. Each author will be highlighted, not just on our website and on our main Facebook Page, but also at the event itself.
Each author’s post will be kept in its original form as best we can to preserve the artistic integrity of each author with changes only occurring in cases of spelling errors and minor technical changes to make the posts more accessible for our visually impaired readers. With that in mind, we hope you enjoy the posts that are soon to come from our contributors, such as Misfit Sanctuary and International Pagan Radio.
Coming up, we’ve planned to have one group and one vendor per month, with additional content between, including a community book list, reviews of non-pagan (but still eclectic) stores, events, poems, and more! There is so much going on in our community, and we’re so excited to see everyone getting so involved and finding new places to go and things to see. If you or someone you know would like to write for our Community Spotlights, please let us know via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our volunteers are hard at work making this the best Piedmont Pagan Pride Day ever, and we’re always looking for more help. If you’re interested in volunteering in any capacity, please send us an email at the address below, and we will be more than happy to help you get involved.
Thank you and Blessed Be,
Cameryn Rhosyn (They/Them/Theirs)
