SEAPAX Campout! North Cascades National Park July 14-16

RSVP to campout@seapax.org: The 2017 Annual SEAPAX Campout will be held at the Newhalem Creek Campground in the North Cascades National Park, July 14-16. We have reserved several adjacent individual campsites that should accommodate our group. Details about the campground can be found here. Families and friends are welcome.

In order to plan we need a count of folks who will be joining us. To RSVP or ask questions send a note to campout@seapax.org. There will be opportunities to hike and explore the area on your own or with others.

SEAPAX is subsidizing part of the cost for our camp so we are asking for a contribution of just $5 per person for both nights (what a deal!)   We traditionally have a group potluck on Saturday night, with all other meals being on your own.

Mark this event on your calendar. There will be lots to do and see in this beautiful park. Enjoy the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. RSVP today!

A taste of the park can be found in this album.

Ramadan Iftar Potluck, Thursday 6/8

Join SEAPAX on Thursday, June 8, for an evening of information, dialog and a meal!

Ramadan is a month of fasting and prayer observed by Muslims around the world. To learn more about Islam and Muslim culture we have again invited Imam Jamal Rahman to join us.  Imam Rahman is one of the three “Interfaith Amigos” who use dialog and discussion to increase understanding among three of the world’s great religious traditions – Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Volunteers and friends are invited to join us for an evening of socializing, discussion and fun. This is the third time SEAPAX has organized an iftar potluck and last year we had a wonderful turnout and a stimulating evening.

Thursday, June 8, 7 pm, at a private home in Magnolia. Please RSVP to Mark Hower mhower@antioch.edu for the address.
