Summer Cheer

Midsummer Mingle

How about some summer cheer in the middle of winter?

You might remember the Midsummer Mingle we threw with some friends and colleagues last June? It was magical night and we had so much fun chatting with everyone who came, seeing the maypole dancers perform, eating the delicious food.  Here’s a charming little video that Steve Olpin made documenting the festivities.  Music by Kevin Macleod.

See photos from the Mingle here and here.
