PEPPERELL -- How often do we say "I'm so busy, I don't know what day it is" or "Summer is just speeding by?"

Take a break from the hustle and the bustle to enjoy the signs of the season around us.

The Wheel of the Year is a way of observing the seasons, popularized by some modern Pagan traditions, with deep roots in solar and agricultural cycles. We're especially lucky here to see the Wheel at work around us because of the farming that is so much a part of Pepperell's community.

Come join us on Aug. 7 at 6:30 p.m. at Lawrence Library for a talk about the Wheel of the Year. We'll also explore the folklore and traditions of Lughnasad, the Festival of the First Harvest, and reflect on its lessons.

In the spirit of sharing the abundance of the harvest, we'll be collecting a donation for PACH. Gifts of non-perishable food items are greatly appreciated.

For ideas on what's needed see the Suggested Donations list at: http://www.pachoutreach.org/donations/donations.html

Registration is appreciated for planning. Contact Deb Spratt at 978-433-0330 or dspratt@cwmars.org for more information.
