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.

"The tangled skirt" opens run at unique venue

Director Judie Hanel presents the Steve Braunstein play “The Tangled Skirt” in an unusual theatrical setting, River Daze Café. Here, Bailey Brice (Bruce Howard) arrives at a small town bus station and has a fateful encounter with Rhonda Claire (Desiree Amyx Mackintosh). Small talk turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse and both seek advantage. The actors present the story as a staged reading in the café, where large windows and street lights lend themselves to the bus station setting, according to Hanel. Performances are 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28, Saturday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 1. (There is no Friday performance.) Tickets available at the door or Waucoma Bookstore: $15 adults, $12 seniors and children under 15. No children under 9. Enlarge
