As candles are lit and extinguished, the revels will follow the rhythm of moving from darkness to light.

The evening Includes a no-host bar and reception, buffet dinner, secular ceremony filled with plenty of storytelling, singing, a raffle and dancing to close out the evening. The band, Robonzo's Bolero, will perform. We'll sing familiar favorites like "Here Comes the Sun" and "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" and new solstice songs written just for the occasion.
