About Officers of Avalon: On 15 December 1999 Corporal
Tricia Mullensky of the University of Massachusetts (Dartmouth) Police
Department created the Yahoo e-group Officers of Avalon as a "way for
Pagan law enforcement and emergency personnel to talk, discuss, vent or
ask questions to others of like mind."
In its infancy, Officers of Avalon was a small e-group where Pagans in the emergency services could chat. That all changed on 12 May, 2002, when Tim Flanagan posted on the e-group about forming a non-profit group.The initial burst of enthusiasm expanded
of Avalon isn't just an e-group anymore. It has become a benevolent
association for Pagan professionals in the emergency services. We will
offer Pagan police officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians, military
and rescue personnel a safe place to vent, to share ideas and to
disseminate information that affects us.
Officers of Avalon is a fraternal, educational, and charitable
organization. We seek to provide a community and network for Pagan first
responders and to serve as a voice for them. We seek to provide
accurate information and improve public perception about Pagan
spirituality through education. We seek to defend followers of Pagan
spirituality by working against misinformation, discrimination,
defamation, harassment and intimidation. We are an outreach to Pagans in
the Emergency Services. We also seek to demonstrate that Pagans are a
charitable people. To that end, we work on the collection and
distribution of donations to communities in need for natural disaster
relief. Join us today as an Officer of Avalon or as a Friend of Avalon.
