If you have other commitments that evening, please stop by anytime until late. If anyone plans to camp, (RV’s only – no tents) you must contact OTS directly.
There will be children’s activities, wreath-making, cheese-making and music. If enough people bring pīrāgi, there will be a pīragi contest. A donation of $5/person is suggested for dinner.
