Location to be announced.

The funds raised from this POLLY will go towards the Holding Our Own's Sanctuary Fund.

The fund is a loan/grant fund established to finance security deposits to women and families in our community who find they need to leave their homes without notice. This could be as a result of a disaster, a divorce, domestic violence or any other emergent need. The definition of “sanctuary” speaks for itself. The fund benefits women and their families who do not have access to other sources of support. To maintain the fund’s balance and continue making loans/grants to many community members over time, we encourage loans over grants with the pledge of replenishing the fund within the means of the recipient.

I believe I am the Kirk mentioned here (safe assumption based on the rarity of meeting another Kirk, which I would remember). I am touched by this mention. I already feel like I am part of the community.

I moved to Troy just shy of two years ago and its no joke to say that it was in part because the phenomenal Blaine O'Neill had started this great lil dance party called Polly. I thought that if even 10 people in this town knew how to get weird on the dance floor, then it would be good here. Well, it is, and my my has this baby has grown! LN Foster nursed wee Polly with so much nutrition, and I am so happy to now be co-hosting with the magnanimous Sean Desiree, who is growing Polly all out into more intention, more magic. So grateful. WHAT A NIGHT!

This song is a celebration of being abnormal....I thought it fits the party theme and you all would like it. It's in Spanish sorry, but the rithm may just glue to your hips......"We are abnormal" Residente (singer Calle 13):

Three eyes, four ears A lot of hair between the eyebrows With the cheeks full of pimples With no arms or legs, like the worms Imperfections everywhere Scars, humps, moles Bunions in both foot With eight fingers instead of ten White, your brain veins are showing up Like coffe without milk, so dark Bad distributed, like the cows A lot of belly, but with skinny legs Big head, tiny body Cellulitis with limp tights Big lips, bembono, bembona A nose that seems to be another person Here everyone is shapeless And we resist to use uniform The ugliest part of the flower is the The beauty feeds with mistakes Since we look curious We get the beautiful ones nervous Let everybody point us out Everything that's not the same as other shines I'm anormal I'm anormal I'm anormal We're anormal The think I like about you is that you're anormal I'm anormal I'm anormal I'm anormal We're anormal The think I like about you is that you're anormal Our sexuality wakes up The DNA with open legs The cromosomes are dancing bolero The hormones, with hunger, licking their "down part" And we procreate a very weird thing Like us, but with different face Our gens, a labyrinth We're equally different Every thing mixed up is more interesting Like a fly with elephant ears The colours multiply, nobody loses Yellow with blue does green Original, you can't copy it The things that aren't pure can't be multiplied The race gets better when it gets damage We're part of the tribe who clean themselves with dirty I'm anormal I'm anormal I'm anormal We're anormal The think I like about you is that you're anormal I'm anormal I'm anormal I'm anormal I'm anormal I'm anormal I'm anormal I'm anormal I'm anormal .......

Hey Pollyland: we're gearing up for our winter Pollyheat edition and are looking for a few things and people to get us set up right to bring you a most epic, gorgeous evening. Please message us if you have any/all inflatable things we could borrow for the night: i.e. crocodiles, palm trees, flamingos etc. etc. Also, we're beginning to round up our esteemed decoration team. If you are up for contributing a couple hours or a couple days of your time and talents please message. It is a super fun time of collective creativity getting this party ready. We compensate your incredibleness with pizza and love. gratitude, the polly family

I think I'm gonna be out of town for the event but I've got some decorations from a tropical themed party y'all could borrow. They are very cheesy though! I've been meaning to check out Polly for months but I've been busy every time :(

Get ready for Golden Milk!
