May. 22nd, 2006 @ 10:15 pm MPGFA Meet & Greet June 6
Come one! Come all! It is once again time for another Meet & Greet. These have been raving successes over the past few months and we hope to have another great one in June! This month we will be meeting at the Alehouse on June 6 starting around 6pm. The great atmosphere at this pub should provide a great setting.

Come meet fellow pagans and as always members of the MPGFA Exec will be on hand to answer any questions or just to chat with. For those who are not familiar with the Alehouse, it is located next to the Palace at 1717 Brunswick St.

May. 17th, 2006 @ 11:17 am just a reminder: Druid March May 19th
Merry Meet everyone

We know there will be a lot of Druids coming into town during the long weekend in May for the Gaia Gathering. We would like to take this opportunity to show all the Druids a bit of our city and its hospitality. We will be having a Druid march on Friday, May 19 down to one of the best Celtic bars in Halifax, The Old Triangle, where they serve great food and provide amazing music. We hope to move on to the Ale house and various other venues in town. Witness some great Nova Scotian hospitality while sharing ideas with Druids from across Canada. We hope you will join us Friday for a fun filled night.

We will meet in the lobby of Saint Marys University next to the registration desk for the Gaia Gathering in the Loyola Building at 9pm.
