2018 Pagan Community Day Feedback

This year’s event has come and gone.  We had an amazing time and want to extend a big thank you to our vendors, volunteers, and presenters for helping to make it such a wonderful day.

That said, we want to make next year even better.  Below is a link to short survey that has a few questions about the day, what worked, what didn’t, and how we can make think better for all.  It will take just a few moments to complete.

Thank you for helping us create community for all.
