East Alabama Pagan Pride Day 2001
September 23, 2001 (SUNDAY) Noon till 9:00 PM CST
Auburn University Arboretum, Auburn, AL
East Alabama Pagan Pride Day is co-sponsored by The Auburn University
Student Pagan Association and The Church of the Spiral Tree. It is a
day-long event that aims to unify the spirit of Paganism while educating everyone on
what Paganism really is in modern times. The day will be filled with
educational workshops and information booths that hope to dispel the myths
and fantasy of today's mainstream perception of Pagans. We will close the
day with a public Equinox Ritual and a Potluck.
NOTE: We especially need people to volunteer to lead workshops (And as
always all vendors are welcome, provided there is enough space.)
Attendance is open to all ages and the General Public is highly encouraged
to attend. A Potluck will take place in the evening after the Equinox
ritual, but you should bring your own snacks and drinks for the day.
Admission: Please bring two (2) canned or non-perishable food items to be
donated to the East Alabama Food Bank. Last year we raised over 260 pounds
of food. Let's see if we can beat that total!
FROM BIRMINGHAM/I-65/ALL POINTS NORTH:
Take Hwy. 280 East towards Auburn for approx. 95 miles (total distance from
Birmingham to Auburn). On the way, you will go through Alexander City,
where you'll cross over Lake Martin/Tallapoosa River, then through
Dadeville. After Dadeville, you'll go about 16-18 miles (just about 30
miles from the Lake Martin/Tallapoosa River bridge in Alex City, if it
helps). You will see Hwy 147 come into 280 from the left. Next, there is a
Rest Stop on the left, and a Conoco gas station on the right. Beside the
Conoco, there is a road on the right, which is Hwy 147 heading south. Turn
RIGHT onto Hwy 147, which is North College St. Travel about 4 miles until
you cross the railroad tracks, and go through downtown Auburn. You'll then
see the University campus on the right. Continue straight through the
following intersections after the railroad tracks: Glenn Ave., Magnolia
Ave., Thach Ave., Roosevelt. Look for the Heart of Auburn motel and the
Barbeque House on the left. The next intersection is Samford Ave. Go past
this intersection, and take the very next RIGHT (there'll be signs out for
PPD). This is Garden Drive. The Arboretum is on the left. You can park
along the street, or in the little parking lot on the left.
