August marked the waning days of summer and the beginning of the harvest season.  It has been amazing to see the photos of all our AFA family around the world celebrating Freyfaxi.  The great God Frey was honored across the land and we began the first of the great harvest feasts of Asatru.  As Summer fades and Fall begins, it is a great time to take stock of what we have accomplished, for ourselves, for our Folk, and for our AFA family.  Now is a time to bring in all the wondrous accomplishments we have made in our own lives and our families.  Now is also time to share all that we have built, produced, and become with our larger AFA family.  The harvest feast is a custom as old as our Folk and something we celebrate and will celebrate for the next few months.  Let’s share the very best of ourselves with our AFA family, close to home and around the world!  

          September is set to be an amazing month for the AFA, we are all extremely excited for the 3rd annual Fall Fest in Minnesota.  Our folk will travel from across the country to celebrate and to worship with our AFA family.  Gothar Coordinator Blaine Qualls and Folkbuilder Jason Gallagher have created one of the greatest events in the AFA year.  Our Northern Plains Folk are one of, if not THE, most committed and active areas of AFA activity.  Mandy and I as well as the McNallens are beyond excited to celebrate with them this coming weekend.

          If you would like to join us, there is still time to hop in the car and head to Minnesota!  If not, I would urge you to do everything in your power to make it to Winter Nights in the Poconos in October.  These events are how I fell in love with the AFA and how I met some of my very best friends.  Winter Nights specifically is where I met my lovely wife.  These gatherings of the Folk build bonds that transcend distance and last a life time.  We would love to see all out AFA family at these amazing upcoming events.

Hail the Gods!

Hail the Folk!

Hail the AFA!
