The Upper Midwest Pagan Alliance celebrated it’s fourth anniversary Saturday evening with a capacity crowd at the Sacred Paths Center. Not only was the event packed with people, it was packed with activities. Attendees were treated to entertainment by the ever popular Murphey’s Midnight Rounders and tribal dancing by Kamala Chaand. UMPA held it’s annual meeting, where they ratified new by-laws and elected their officers for the next two years. New officers are Bonnie Hanna-Powers, Gary Lingen, Bress Nicneven, Grace Morgan. and Joshua Adam Blesi.
The community also settled a long simmering dispute – who makes the best red sauce, Don from the Coven of the Standing Stones or Mistress Judy Olson? Don won the competition handily, but many at the event said if you mix the two, it was better than each sauce alone.
