Announcing Witches Ball 2015

White Oak Grove CUUPS & Rockford Red Tent invite you to join is for a night of fun and dancing at the Witches Ball on Saturday October 31st, 2015 from 6pm to 10pm, at the Rockford Unitarian Universalist Church.  We’ll gather the community and stir the pot of magic with music, dancing, snacks, funny fortune tellers, and costume contests (prizes for ages 12 and under, 13 through 18, and 18 and over, as well as some special categories), so be sure to dress up!

We will also be honoring our beloved dead with an ancestral altar in the narthex of the church that will be up during the party and for services the next morning.  If you would like to contribute to the altar please bring a copy of a photograph of those you with to honor to leave on the altar.  We may not be able to get it back to you, so please don’t plan on leaving anything of value.
