Unitarian Fellowship observes Samhain

On Oct. 28, to celebrate the pagan festival of Samhain, the Mid-Columbia Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will have a service for remembering and honoring departed friends and relatives.

Samhain, pronounced SAH-win, persists in modern times as Halloween.

A formal pagan ritual will be a major part of the service. That ritual will be a way for each person attending to honor an ancestor or loved ones.

Ancient and contemporary pagan symbolism used in the ritual will be explained.

The service will take place at the Rockford Grange, 4262 Barrett Drive, in Hood River at 10 a.m. All are welcome.

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"

‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
