Emmanuel Drum Circle Returns!
a look at this revealing collage that Deborah Cantwell made of a
previous drum circle. It is a lively reminder of what awaits those who
drop by tonight (April 26th) at 7pm for the monthly drum circle. Ken

Great opportunity to meet people, experience the healing and uniting
