Late Summer 2017 – 2 Home Town Events
Friday July 28th – Opening Night for Circus Juventes’ new production: Nordrsaga!
In 2007 we gathered at Ingebretsens – It was the Celtic First Harvest Celebration, Lugh – Nordics start the Freyblot into Winter Nights. We were enjoying our success and my dance mentor, Tamara Rogers, placed a Ukrainian beaded crown on my head to match hers. We all wore strings and our crone wore ribbons. Then Julie Ingebretsen came into to the party with an ashen face. The I 35 W bridge collapsed. We began to pray.
