Community Notes: May 16-22

Highway clean-up is next weekend. This is one of those events which makes me proud to be in Paganistan. The Upper Midwest Pagan Alliance adopted a stretch of highway. Twice a year, local Pagans like you gather to pick up litter and beautify a piece of the Earth. Best of all, there’s a big sign saying that this stretch of highway is adopted by Pagans, which is supremely cool, and unique. If you’d like to participate, meet at The Central Bank (7111 21st Avenue, Centerville, MN 55038), at 12.30pm;

Paganistan merchandise is now available at all five local metaphysical shops. Postcards and refrigerator magnets are only 99¢ each. Be sure to look for them at these great shops:
* Keys of Paradise
* Sacred Paths Center
* Eye of Horus
* Shadow Lights Minnesota
* Magus Books & Herbs

The big news that everyone is talking about this week is that Minneapolis has been named the gayest city in the nation: We’ve already been named the most bicycle friendly, and the best place for hipsters. Personally I would argue that we also have the greatest Pagan community in the nation. So if you’re a gay bicycle riding hipster Pagan, then you are in the right place, and I want a picture of you for an upcoming postcard and refrigerator magnet.

Sacred Paths Center has some fun concerts coming up. Tickets are cheaper in advance;

Supposedly the rapture is next weekend. Chances are that it won’t affect anyone reading this, so never mind.
