Many thanks to those who came and made Beltane 2012 a possibility on Saturday, May 12, 2012! The Goddess and God are now one, united in love, in the great rite! The ritual included poetry praise, violin music, whiskey and tobacco offerings, a great rite performed by members in aspect of the God and Goddess. What a great time everyone had! With a mighty feast after! Thanks to everyone!

This past April 30 UUPS had a great opportunity to table at the 2011 Earth Jam Festival held in Salt Lake City’s Liberty Park.

Earth Jam is a non-profit organization that raises awareness of environmental issues with a free festival and free concerts.

The weather was not favorable on this morning, with upwards of eight inches of snow in the valley. The sun did come out later to shine its face and warm up the participants and vendors.

“The weather was awful, cold, snowy and some wind. Despite that, we did have about fifteen people sign up to receive our newsletter and many people stopped by for information and pamphlets” said President Muad’Dib.

President Muad’Dib even secured a five minute speaking spot between stage changes of the bands to talk about the group. He commented, “I spoke for a few minutes, but no one was really listening. The problem really was that no one was there because of the weather!  A few lolly gaggers, but they all left once I got to the mic.”

Sorry President Muad’Dib! Hopefully next years Earth Jam will have Gaia treating the crowds with a more tender fist!
