Water Fight Bike Ride this Sunday - Slip N' Slide and more

Remember when summertime meant no school, no worries and bike riding around the neighborhood? Lemonade stands, watermelon, sundaes, squirt guns and Slip n' Slides? The Hottest Day of the Year Ride,  Sunday August 3rd, is a chance to re-live and re-love all of that.

FUN IN THE SUN ON TWO WHEELS

This day of fun in the sun on two wheels features all of that - and more. You'll start and finish at the Lucky Lab NW - where a finish line make-your-own sundae feast awaits! Last year the table of fixins had huge bowls of crushed cookies, strawberries, chocolate sauce, nuts (my favorite!), caramel, marshmallows, fruit loops, whipped cream and more. SO delicious.

A BENEFIT FOR THE CCC

Dances of Universal Peace every Friday

Celebrate Friday night with the Dances of Universal Peace. These energy and consciousness raising circle dances, formerly known as Sufi Dancing, blend folk-style dancing with words and themes from the world's religions. They are a way to joyfully experience the innate heart-connection with each other and with The One, the Spirit that moves through all.

Each dance is fully taught, very EASY to learn, and guided. So fear not! First-timers are welcome and greatly encouraged to participate. In fact, each dance is taught as if the group has never danced before. Children who can follow instructions and maintain a sacred atmosphere are also welcome.
