AUTUMNAL EQUINOX CELEBRATION AT THE KALYX CENTER
Come on out to the Kalyx Center this Saturday evening for fun, food and a huge bonfire to help celebrate the beginning of fall! We're celebrating a few days early this Fall due to the crunch of lots of events later in the month and because the actual equinox falls in the middle of the week, and this notice is a bit late, so spread the word!!
Saturday, Sept. 18, 2010
potluck starts about 6:00
Huge bonfire will be lit about 9:00
Your wonderful self
Friends (please extend this invitation to anyone who might be interested)
Food -- enough to share...we have wood and charcoal grilles, microwaves, other kitchen stuff
Music -- Instruments, CD's, or your voice.
long pants and shoes for walking around
** The peak of the Autumn Olive season is right now. They’re all over the Kalyx Center land. They’re invasive, but also their berries are very good for your health. Check out this link (with thanks to Shameem Rakha.)
If you’d like to pick lots of berries, come out early on Saturday afternoon. They’re free and healthful!
**Mark your calendar -- Urbana Country Dancers will be sponsoring two consecutive nights of fast-moving fall dance with live bands and callers at the Kalyx Barn on Friday and Saturday., October 1st and 2nd.
The Kalyx Center for Sustainability is a non-profit organization which
