Celebrating the Solstice

We had a beautiful night together in celebration of the Summer Solstice! We enjoyed the beautiful gardens at St Luke Presbyterian with delicious appetizers, a silent auction, tours of the St Luke solar and permaculture gardens, and a wonderful concert from Peter Mayer, it was a truly moving evening! 

We have some exciting auction items that are still open! Including the Dinner at Gandhi Mahal with Representative Frank Hornstein, Boundary Waters Canoe Area Guided Camping Trip for 4 people, and Breakfast with Representative Jean Wagenius at Turtle Bread. You can make bids online by clicking those links. Bidding will close on July 17th and winners will be notified via email. 


Peter Mayer writes songs for a small planet—songs about interconnectedness and the human journey; about the beauty and the mystery of the world. Whimsical, humorous, and profound, his music breaks the boundaries of "folk", and transcends to a realm beyond the everyday love song, to a place of wonder at the very fact of life itself. 

Peter began playing the guitar and writing songs when he was in high school. He studied Theology and music in college, and then spent two years in seminary. After deciding that the priesthood wasn't for him, he took a part-time job as a church music director for 8 years, while performing at clubs and colleges, and writing and recording his music. In 1995, he quit his job and started touring full-time. Since then, Peter has gradually gained a dedicated, word-of-mouth following, playing shows from Minnesota to Texas, New England to California. He has nine CDs to his credit, and has sold over 70 thousand of them independently. You can visit his website here.
