Olivia Robertson's 90th Birthday Party

Lady Olivia sends photos and comments on her birthday party. She writes:

"My 90th birthday dedicated for two days to the Goddess Brigid. 13th April: Procession of seventy people from terrace down the Yew Walk led by Lydia Lyte, drummer and Julie Felix, singer, both FOI Priestesses. Three playlets in Theatre - funny! Demeter, Persephone by nieces Cressida Pryor and Caroline Pryor-Watson and "The Abduction Syndrome" by me - updated to include Indigo children! 14th April: Too many all to fit in Temple, which holds seventy! An ordination of Antoinette as Priestess of Kwan Yin. Thirty of my English cousins attended, including six children. Rt. Revs. Caroline Wise and John Merron came from London and Revs. Lydia, Jane Maxwell, Celia Thomas from Glastonbury. USA visitors came on the 28th April, Rt. Rev. Cathryn Anne Rogers and Rev. Pat Cummings. So all for the Goddess, not for me!"

Lady Olivia's party was filmed to be shown later on a local television network. A further account of her birthday will also be included in the next Isian News.
