World Labyrinth Day 2009 a Success!

Stories and photos continue to be received and from all accounts, our first World Labyrinth Day was a great success!  Thanks to all of you who walked, posted flyers, helped spread the word, and shared your stories and photos.  Despite only twelve weeks of planning and preparation, World Labyrinth Day 2009 was well celebrated.

Organized by TLS member Randy Fillmore, the largest World Labyrinth Day event was held on the Ellipse in Washington, DC.  The event planted 'labyrinth seeds' in at least 12 different countries to include New Zealand, Germany, France, China, Croatia, Japan, Australia, Greece, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England.  Another noteworthy World Labyrinth Day event was held in Port Orford, Oregon where TLS member Paulianne Balch-Rancourt and Nancy Angelesco created a 'Temporary Edible Labyrinth' using this as an opportunity to collect donations for two local food banks.  This project, the North Curry Food Labyrinth, was awarded TLS Special Project status in April.

And that's just two of the events!  Plans are in the works to post your World Labyrinth Day photos in the Events Gallery on the TLS website.  It's not too late to send your photos or stories!

Also, a 2009 World Labyrinth Day Google Map is being created to chronicle the inaugural event.  Is your event listed?  If not, please forward the address, or better yet, the GPS coordinates to the PR Chair, Stephanie Blackton.

Mark your calendars now for the first Saturday in May, World Labyrinth Day 2010.
