2021 Quarry Expenses

"Many things in life are dirt-cheap... dirt is not one of them." ~Red Rose Tea Bag, drunk by Helen Federico, 1966. This staying applies to stones too... We have made the decision not to base the attendee cost for attending Stone Family Gathering (Labor Day weekend, in Flintstone PA) on the cost of the Stones we will raise, rather we are organizing fundraising to defer those costs. Please consider donating! We Have raised about $3k but need another $2k
Goal: $2,500.00
Collected: $275.00

The Mission of Stone Circle Council

The mission of Stone Circle Council, LLC is to build a safe and supportive religious community, to support and nurture the people that comprise it rather than only the places where they gather. We intend to fulfill this mission by holding regular religious ceremonies, spiritual festivals, and fellowship opportunities, by empowering our members to organize and offer their own ceremonial events, and by providing a welcoming environment in which individuals can join us in worship and community. We will focus our intention through the ceremonial raising of stones in any place they are welcomed, needed, and honored.
