    A Letter from the Officers, 

    Hello Tribe, the officers have been talking a lot behind the scenes and listening and researching the information about Covid-19 that the CDC and other government agencies have been putting out.  

    We were planning on cancelling our Ostara weekend tonight, and rescheduling the ceremonies and work to take place during Beltane... however, the CDC has just issued new guidance. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/large-events/mass-gatherings-ready-for-covid-19.html 

    To summarize, they have asked all community gatherings of more than 50 people to be cancelled for 8 weeks, or until May 10th.  This impacts our next several events, and I am so sorry.  As an officers group there is a lot that we will have to talk about in regards to options we have for virtual meetings, what to do about our upcoming elections and more.  Please stay tuned for more information.  

    We miss all of you dearly and hope that you will all stay well through the course of the infection spreading through our local communities. This cancellation is in keeping with the recommendations of the CDC, local governments and health departments.   We want to thank you all for your understanding and patience as we all navigate this situation together. 

    Please be assured that over the next few days we will work with everyone to refund event fees that have been pre-paid and do our best to stay in touch.  

    Please stay tuned here in your e-mail box and on our facebook page. 

    Love and Light, 

    The SCC Officers.

    Coffee and fellowship go hand and hand.   The trouble is that durable goods like coffee pots that will last another 10 years aren't free.  So, I've added an opportunity for folks to contribute to the purchase of a coffee pot and the air-pots that go with it to the front page.  Right now, our membership fees are headed to be able to cover most of the organizations over-head expenses for year one and I thank you all for that.  But, it doesn't look like there will be money for coffee pots.  Now, I know we could all bring our own, and we could make something work, and we will, if we have to but I think that a durable goods purchase like coffee pots will pay for itself over time and is something that will truly be used at every SCC event. So please, if you have a dollar or ten to spare consider donating it here!

    Greetings!

    The first news of the year is the formation of the legal entity Stone Circle Council LLC.  This organization will spend the next year fleshing out its governance.  First we will convene a committee to draft a set of bylaws. To participate in the committee, please send a letter as to why you wish to participate to our acting executive officer Patty Althouse.  Concurrently Patty and I (Kate) will be working on applying for PA non-profit status so that all your donations will be able to be tax deductible.  The royal-we thank you for your patience and support as we create a community we can all be proud of.
