COMMUNITY QUIBBLER- by Dina Hendzel

May 9, 2012 by Lain

 


Hello Everyone!

I hope you are doing well and are all enjoying the weather.  My apologies for the two different fonts of the Quibbler.  I am not sure what happened here (might be a glitch with the program I’m using) but I can’t change it to make it work and I’ve run out of time and have to send this out.  Hopefully it won’t be the same next month.

The Quibbler will be changing within the next few months, but will still be the same valuable resource for Edmonton and area pagans.  For this issue, we will be including June events (for the entire month) as a part of the transition.  Enjoy!

Just to let you know that the full moon this month is a “Super Moon”, meaning that this month’s full moon coincides with its closest approach to the Earth (221,802 miles).  Enjoy!
