Hi "One-Heart Community Drum" Folks!,
     Great job to all that participated in the "Spirit Rhythm" Drum and Dance Quest. Kudos to all the facilitators, and workers that made it possible, and a special thanks to Sheila Kingsbury for hosting the event on her land. The event was very successful, and a great time was had by all!
     I'll be in North Carolina for the remainder of the week, (attending my folks 60th wedding Anniversary), so will miss this weekends drum circle at the park. Be sure to bring your drum(s), and I'll be back the following weekend. Love, Steve
