The members of SLPS gathered on Saturday, July 8, 2017 to honor the full moon goddesses. Columbiana was there in spirit, as the table cloth for 4th of July was wandering about the warehouse this year. With a storm raging, the magic was potent and powerful, drawing down the storm energy. Vice President Ashton Longhurst led the rite, taking over for President Cureton who will be moving for work next month.
