"Calling all of our drumming, hooping and flowing friends, and their friends, to come and enjoy an Autumn day in a beautiful and sacred place! If you have never been to Ft. Salem Mound, then you are in for a treat...this mound is set amid an expansive and picturesque landscape, with a river running beside it. For those who have been here before, the mound awaits the beat of our drums and the renewal of life and laughter that we will bring. Let's do a picnic-style potluck, spread out blankets and commune together. This is a family-friendly event, no alcohol or intoxicants please. The energy will be incredible as it is! :)"
