This members page, as the rest of this Red Maple Grove webpage, is currently being updated. Touch wood, more current information will be posted in the near future. Thank you for your patience.
Red Maple Grove formed twenty one years ago in 1999. We have had roughly ten to twelve ADF members over much of that period with other people identifying as Red Maple, as well as various others, participating in our activities. These days, of course, activities are largely online. As time passes, new members and participants arrive and some earlier ones may move, physically and/or otherwise, Current members wishing to have a bio here are invited to let us know and send us their bio.
According to our bylaws, elections are held at our Annual General Meeting on or around Samhain, and terms are for two years, from Samhain to Samhain. Those serving the Grove in leadership roles after this Samhain may be listed here soon after that. A token listing of current members mentions two previously serving as Senior Druid.
