Registered Adults and their kids 

Please plan to join us and bring a dish to pass.  Any and all registered adults and their children are welcome to attend.  After we eat we will have a brief recap of the past year and go over ideas for next year.  What did we like, what could we have done better or different, what can we plan for the year ahead!  Be the first to know and also help us with some ideas!  While the adults talk and plan, the kids will have access to the playground (weather permitting) and various games to play, but they are also welcome to join in on the conversations.   #ItTakesAVillage!!! Please join us!
