Imbolc: Roman Style Ritual?

n two days, Imbolc rolls around, and with it, the celebration of the home, hearth, and whatnot.

In two days, I am supposed to have an Imbolc ritual written and be ready to lead said ritual.

Dan, our lovely President of Pagan Moon (A religion tolerance organization at Northern Michigan University) has requested I write a ritual for Imbolc using the Roman pantheon of deities.

My question is, what god or goddess can be associated with this holiday? I have been going through pages of research and the only goddess I can think of is Proserpine (Persephone in Greek mythology) who is trapped with Pluto in the underworld for half a year and one earth the other. The only thing is that I think she could be more associated with Beltaine, or Ostara, and I'm at a loss of what to do.

If anyone could give me a nudge in the right direction, I would be most appreciative.
