Well, hello everyone!

     Thanks for tuning in for another edition of our nifty newsletter. We've been pretty busy trying to get things taken care of in the background with potential new possibilities. While they didn't pan out this time, it opened up some ideas to us for the future and for things to consider. With all said and done, we have officially locked in our date for Saturday, October 27th, 2018 at the Onslow Pines Park. 
     We've already received some reservations from vendors, information booths, and even entertainment! I'm super pleased that we've gotten so much feedback and excitement from both the public and from our own participants. Believe me, when I say, I truly hope that this event will be a success. I know that the first year will be a hard one, but it will be well worth it for our community. Every person that I've personally discussed this event with is delighted to have the event in our own backyard and thinks this is long overdue for our area since the last event. I know with everyone's help, guidance, and participation, we'll do all that we can to bring this event to new heights each year. 
     Now that we've determined the exact location and date of the event, we've also decided to add a special vendor space and price to our options. Now our vendors can choose a vendor space of either 10x10 space for $51.75 (with taxes included) or a 5x10 space for $26.75 (with taxes included). The 5x10 space works out great for those who are just starting their inventory, are only doing readings, or plainly don't require a full 10x10 space. Walmart does sell small canopies as one of my co-coordinators did discover or you can use a beach umbrella. 
    We want to say a big thank you to CNC Raleigh for their donation of items to our event. These items will greatly help us in our endeavors to build and grow into a beautiful festival. We also want to say thank you to our sponsors again for their donations and our vendors for signing up to be apart of our event. 
     Of course, we're always in need of vendors, entertainment, information booths (ie covens/groups), and of course sponsors. :) If you would like to be apart of the event in any compacity, even a volunteer, please reach out to us and let us know! We would love to have you join us! As they say... Join the dark side... We have cookies. ;) 

Well, that's all for now, til next time. Merry meet, merry part, and merry meet again.

We'd like to officially welcome the Lapis Dragon as our Event Sponsor for South Eastern NC Pagan Pride Day!!!! Thank you Lapis Dragon for your sponsorship and partnering with us for our event. We are excited to see all of the fun we'll have!  Some wonderful news, we were approved through google non-profits for some cool things and we have an ad and are in the process of generating our domain and suites over to a non-profit for my co-coordinators to have their personalized emails through the org correct, and our youtube set up for future collages and videos. We're still working on donations and sponsors but we've started getting stuff here and there for the event. Hope you guys are still ready to sign up for booths because we're still accepting everyone!!!! We're still awaiting information for some updates potentially about the event, but we should know by Friday next week. :) Also, We're still gathering for sponsors and donations for the event. If you would like to donate any items to our wonderful event such as a bullhorn, foldable tables, gift cards to Walmart or Sam's Club, Staples, etc., let us know! We will write you a tax donation receipt letter so that you can use it on your taxes as we are officially a chapter and gen under the Pagan Pride Project Charity and Non-profit. 

If you donate, we'll give you a special shout-out on our Website, if you would like your name listed, business, or you can remain anonymous. If you donate more than a $100, remember you automatically become an advertising sponsor for the event with gets you your vendor booth for FREE!!!!!! (What!! :) )

We are excited to get this thing going and we're getting closer every day. We're actually already in the process of starting to put together next years event so that we can formulate the skeleton for annual fun! Which is one of the things we are waiting to hear about for Friday. :) So, keep your fingers crossed, and we'll have some updates to come soon. In addition to wish lists for Onslow County Animal Services and Possumwood Acres. :)

Thank you again, everyone! We truly appreciate your support and look forward to seeing your feedback.
