Last November (2020) I was voted in as Chief Druid and Scribe (Secretary) with Columbia Grove, ADF again for the 4th year!
This April (2021) I was voted in as the Northwest Regional Druid in ADF (Ár nDraíocht Féin: A Druid Fellowship)!
What does "Regional Druid" mean? This means I am the point of contact and voice for the ADF members and groves in the Northwest states. These states include Oregon, Washington, Northern California, Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and Nevada. There are a bit over 180 members in the region currently! I am SO excited about this new position and look forward to getting to know so many new lovely members. I have a lot of great ideas I can't wait to start working on.
This is also the HUGE kick to the butt that I've needed to keep working on my Pre-Clergy Training Program work. I've been slacking so much an I need to correct that. I have set a goal to get the course I am working on finished and submitted by the end of the week. :)
I only 2 essays left in that course!
Lately I have been working hard with writing and leading virtual rituals with many wonderful Columbia Grove members, volunteering with local nature conservation and protection groups, working with an amazing team of volunteers on Columbia Grove's virtual Beyond the Gates festival this year, and getting all the Regional Druid stuff set up. I have been swimming in lists and spreadsheets and I love every minute of it.
