Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice Luncheon and Celebration Plus!

Sunday, Dec. 16, 2012

1:00 – 4:00 pm or as long as you want to stay

Now that we’ve been collecting reservations for a while, we know we’ve still got room.

Therefore, you no longer need to make a deposit in advance and can just show up at Cha-Cha’s for the party, if you’re able. We’d love to have you with us  for our Winter Solstice Celebration. Details follow, and you’re welcome to bring a spouse, partner or friend.
Cha-Cha’s Cocina Mexicana, 6130 Stanford Ranch Rd., Rocklin

This year, instead of a regular December meeting and potluck, we’re holding a Winter Solstice luncheon extravaganza at Cha-Cha’s Cucina Mexicana restaurant in Rocklin—primarily a social event and a change of pace. We have a fun afternoon in store at this cantina with suns and moons for décor, as though it was designed just for us! We hope as many of you as possible can join us. Included in the festivities will be:

Cha-Cha’s Cocina Mexicana

  • A special Winter Solstice meditation to commemorate what might be the biggest turning-point in our lifetimes as the Mayan Calendar ends (or turns over like an odometer to zero, according to astrologer Bruce Scofield). As we learned from guest speaker Linea Van Horn a year ago, it’s also a time when a corner of our tropical zodiac will pass through the zone that aligns with the center of our galaxy.
  • Humorous holiday surprises
  • A surprise gift

You are welcome to bring spouses, partners or friends, but the seating capacity in the separate room we will be using is limited to 30 people. To assure commitments and keep our RSVPs accurate, we are asking you to sign up as early as possible with a $10 deposit. We will return $10 to you in cash the day of the event, which you can use to pay your tab. (Separate checks have been negotiated.) Dinners range from $10-17 plus drinks. The guacamole is on NCGR-SAA! For approximately the same cost as one of our special guest presentations, we’ll have a fantastic, star friendly kick-off to the holiday season and a sacred welcome to this unique Winter Solstice and the end of the Mayan Calendar.
