Support Pagan Pride!

Your DFW Pagan Pride Day planning committee presents our first fundraising event of 2014.

 Come to the PAGAN GARAGE SALE on Saturday, April 12th, 2014 10am til 5pm at Arlington UU Church 2001 California Lane, Arlington TX 2014. 

Have some old ritual items, books or other things you no longer need? Rent a space from us for $20 and bring your stuff on down. We will provide you a 10×10 space on a first come first serve basis and ask that you provide any tables, chairs, etc. that you might need to spend the day selling your stuff. It doesn’t have to be strictly Pagan related stuff either, feel free to bring any other household items you might sell in a typical garage sale. Proceeds from space rental benefit the Pagan Pride Day 2014 expense fund. Sellers are expected to take any unsold items with them when they leave the event or make arrangements for someone else to take them. There are twenty 10′ x 10′ spaces available for registration. If you would like to reserve one please let us know by emailing us at dfwppd@live.com.

Not looking to sell but want to shop for something? Come on down! Bring your friends, bring your family! Come see what there is to see.

2014 Plans Under Way

DFW Pagan Pride!

DFW Pagan Pride!

Plans are well under way for DFW Pagan Pride Day as we continue to seek out our venue for PPD 2014. This year, in the interests of fairness and moving the event around from year to year throughout our vast metroplex area we will be seeking a venue in Tarrant County. Some places we have already been in contact with are Trinity Park Pavilion and Arlington area Parks but we are still seeking other options. If you have some suggestions please let us know. Coming in the near future we plan to have a Pagan Garage Sale, stay tuned for more info on that as we hash out details. Also, if you are interested in taking part in an upcoming Maypole Dance Flash Mod which will be recorded and uploaded to YouTube please let us know. We want to try to do this sometime in late April. As always, join our announcements email list and like our pages on Facebook or Google+ to stay in the loop!

Many Blessings and Looking Forward To Seeing Our Great Community Come Together Again Like We Did In 2013!!!

WHAT IF IT RAINS!?!?

We will be there rain or shine! We’re Pagans, We LOVE mama nature!  We have the covered porch area in back and space underneath the building as well. Some of our volunteers plan to bring EZ-Ups with walls and covered pavilions. So shelter will be available and we can improvise. I might even just dance in the rain if it comes!  -Troy

Volunteers Still Needed!

Respected Readers,

I’m posting in the hopes of encouraging you to join us as a volunteer with DFW Pagan Pride Day. An organization that focuses on building unity through education, community, charity, and activism of Paganism, Heathenism and Earth Centered Spirituality as well as promoting religious freedom and acceptance of ALL in the spirit of peace!
Our goals this year include:
Education
-Share accurate information about Paganism and its pathways through workshops
-Dispel misconceptions and myths about Paganism in a calm and respectful manner
-Direct the community to year around sources of information for continued learning
Community
-Bring the local community together in the spirit of peace and acceptance
-Provide a positive atmosphere for mingling and getting to know fellow members of your community
Charity
-Canned Food benefiting SoupMobile Charity
-Pagans For Life blood drive through Carter Bloodcare
-Distributing information about local non-profit organizations that are Pagan friendly
Activism
-Invite everyone to join together at this event for free and celebrate religious freedom and acceptance in the spirit of peace
-Foster pride in Pagan identity by hosting three public Pagan rituals

Pagan Pride Day is nearly upon us and we’re very excited! We incite you to participate in this celebration, which is also a major fundraiser for next year’s Pride event. I personally encourage you to become a volunteer. There are many people in our areas who need to feel that they are part of the greater community and have a support network. If you join us, I’ll meet you at the event on October 5th at The Bath House Cultural Center on White Rock Lake in Dallas at 8AM. We will need PPD volunteers from 8AM – 5PM. Many shifts are available so you do not need to be present the entire day.

I hope you will join us this year at DFW Pagan Pride Day. This will be the first Pagan Pride Day in the North Texas area since 2010.
YOU CAN BE THE DIFFERENCE THIS COMMUNITY NEEDS!

for SoupMobile
*Helping keep the grounds free of litter

Many more areas may need assistance such as the Children’s section. These volunteers will have to check with the fabulous Hiedi Wunder our Children’s Section Coordinator. You can email her using kids@dfwpaganpride.org . She does have shifts as well but we would prefer that no one goes back and forth repeatedly please. Doing a shift for each the grounds and the children’s section would be plenty for anyone who wishes to do so. That and we hope this might make for less traffic not parent and child related to go on within the section. This being a public event this is also a safety precaution, Thank you.

If you would like to participate, please provide any further contact or other information you would prefer below and return to Emily Dewbre-Young Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@dfwpaganpride.org or come see me at the event.

Hope you will consider checking it out maybe even pass the word volunteers still needed and welcome. Thank you for helping out! We could not make Pagan Pride Day a success without volunteers like you. If you are unable to volunteer, you can show your support by attending on October 5th. See you there!!

Sincerely,

Emily Dewbre-Young
