That's right folks, Circle Pines is turning 75!
Visit the CPC REUNION BLOG
As many of our lives have been literally transformed by our involvement in Circle Pines, so has the Center been shaped and molded by all of the activists, youth and mentors who have contributed their labor, skills, knowledge and love to the land and the organization. In recognition of this mutualism, we invite ALL OF YOU to join us at Circle Pines from August 16-18, 2013 for the 75th JUBILEE!
Activities at the JUBILEE will include: folk dancing, singing, a Memorial Service, yoga and exercise, swimming, hiking and more. There will also be plenty of time to reminisce and share our memories about our experiences, as friends, together on this land. We are planning two plenary sessions for the weekend, with speakers that you will not want to miss. On Saturday we will host the traditional Banquet, followed by a program to include speeches, music and dancing.
Plan to come on Friday afternoon, dinner will be our first meal, and stay until late afternoon Sunday. Or, stay into the following week and join us for the People's Institute.
Registration for the 75th meals is CLOSED. To register for the 75th without meals, call the office at 269-623-5555.
We are excited to host Emma's Revolution at the 75th Jubilee. Pat Humphries and Sandy O will be performing in the Rec Hall on Friday, August 16th at 8:00pm, after which they will lead us in a community sing! You won't want to miss these special guests, who bring their uprising of truth, hope and a dash of healthy irreverence to concerts, as well as movements towards peace & justice, environmental, LGBT & women's rights, immigration & human rights and labor justice throughout the world. In the spirit of Emma Goldman's famous attribution, "If I can't dance, I don't want to be part of your revolution". LISTEN
