Hi "One-Heart Community Drum" Folks!,
    The "Happiness Parade" at the Grassroots Festival went very well, and off-site drumming occurred each evening, for those that wished to participate. Thanks to all that contributed. We'll be back in the park this weekend. Hope to see you there! Love, Steve

    Saturday, 30 July, Open Community Drum Circle, Stewart Park, NW corner, south end of Cayuga Lake, Ithaca, NY. Extra drums available, children welcomed, potluck optional.

July 30th 2:40P.M. EDT New Moon (2nd New Moon of Month): Happy New Beginnings!

  Hi Steve:
    Please add August 6th, Madeleine's 1st Birthday Party: Baby Drum Circle and it is Chickie's birthday (thinking vegan cupcakes)  unofficially it is also our housewarming party.  We are welcoming guests starting at 1 pm and we will probably go well into the evening but we may have to respect some neighbors, so migration to Stewart Park is also possible.  The address is 107 Indian Creek Rd.  Up 96 towards T-Burg, turn right onto Dubois Rd just before the entrance to Indian Creek Farm. (use Indian Creek farm as a turnaround if you miss Dubois)  Off Dubois take the very first right onto Indian Creek.  We are 3rd house on the left.  This event is especially for kids of all ages.  We are strongly discouraging gifts, just good drumming energy and a dish to pass if you like.  The rain plan is simply to drum indoors.  ~Meghan
    Steve's Note: I plan on going to Meghan's daughter's birthday party/housewarming prior to our regular drum circle Saturday afternoon. Let me know if you need a ride. This day is also Chickie's birthday, (and two days after my own.) Feel free to bring a dish to pass for drum circle, but gifts are not expected. Thanks!
