IMG_1129

Decatur Active Living invites the community to celebrate the Summer Solstice on Thursday, June 21 at 6 pm on the Old Courthouse Square in downtown Decatur.

Throughout history, many cultures have associated the summer solstice with a renewal of mind, body and spirit in a celebration of the sense of joyfulness and the fun that the sunshine evokes in all of us. Come together to celebrate with a community practice. If it rains, we will move to the Decatur Recreation Center.

Bring your mat, water and your sense of fun. The event is free, however we encourage a $10 donation to the Decatur Youth Fund. No one will be turned away.

For more information contact Cheryl.Burnette@decaturga.com or 678-553-6541.
