Invitation to 40th Anniversary Celebration

 
Dear Friends and Members,

I am delighted to inform you of the 40th Anniversary Celebration of the Founding of the Fellowship of Isis at Huntington Castle over the weekend of March 19th and 20th next year.

Put it in your diary now!

You can be assured of a welcome as we honour and celebrate the first festival of our beloved fellowship; at the very same place that inspired the Founders.

There will be an exhibition of memorabilia, photos, films and other items to prompt memories and a sharing of past involvement. We will hold the Spring Equinox Festival on Saturday; have speakers to add to and extend the contexts of the Fellowship over the weekend and on Sunday the opening of the new Sacred Grove in memory of the Founders. There will be a seated shared meal together on the Saturday evening and Sunday lunchtime.

Sadly as places are limited, due to restricted seated space, we would encourage an expression of interest to attend as soon as possible and January 6th at the latest; so we can prepare a memorable and special celebration for everyone.

True to the manifesto ideals the FOI has no membership fee so there are no funds to draw on for this event. We will need to cover food costs and marquee hire so will inform you of this as soon as we can when we know numbers better. We will keep costs to a minimum.

Please RSVP to our Hon. Sec. at the Foundation Centre (
hon.sec.circleofbrigid@gmail.com) clearly marking the email ‘40th Anniversary Celebration’.

With blessings and thanks,
Cressida Pryor; the Founder’s Successor and Steward of the FOI.

Update: In view of the numbers of members who have already indicated their interest in attending, it will not be possible to facilitate the attendance of members who have chosen another path from those loyal to Foundation Centre, Olivia's family and Cressida, her chosen successor.   (written by C. Pryor)
 
Post script: The recent amendment grew from an awareness of space limitations in the Temple given the number who have already said they want to attend. Also the vision for this event is one of celebrating the founder's gifts to us; meeting old and new 'fellows' in friendship and spiritual harmony. It is not the appropriate forum to try and tackle some of the profound disagreements that have occurred; this would require a separate more focussed specialised approach another time.  In March 2016 Huntington will be family home and the Foundation Centre open for friendship, celebration, inspiration and spiritual connection...as it is for all the regular festivals. Cressida Pryor FOI Steward.
