The Winter Solstice–also known as The Longest Night, Midwinter, Yule, and Jol–is a day that human beings across the globe have been celebrating since the stone age over 15,000 years ago. It represents the shortest period of sunlight in a single day for the whole year, and in turn, the longest period of darkness.

The winter months to follow were typically difficult for early peoples. In fact, they came to be known as “the famine months.” Today of course, winters aren’t so hard on our stomachs–quite the opposite for many of us! But our human need for community, connection, and celebration has not changed. And so we are excited to announce that we will once again be hosting our annual Winter Solstice Banquet and we’d love it if you joined us.

The menu for this year will consist of:
Chicken Picatta
Piccata~roasted chicken sliced thin and topped with a traditional lemon caper sauce alongside a white rice medley
Cuban Roast Pork
with black beans and Spanish rice garnished with fried plantains
Bowtie Pasta (Vegan)
Bowtie Pasta~with artichoke hearts, fresh Roma tomatoes, and capers in a tomato sauce
Salad, Bread, Drinks and Deserts

The presentation this year will be short, we will take a few moments to thank our event hosts for the year as well as present the Humanist of the Year award.

For those who would like to continue the fellowship after the formal event you can join us after the event at The Railhouse 212 Kelton Ave, Columbus, OH 43205

We look forward to celebrating the end of another successful year with all of you!
