Due to continuing coronavirus pandemic uncertainties, and in consideration of the safety and welfare of all, we have decided not to run the live, in-person 2021 Spring Fling event.
In its place we're planning an online Spring Fling program during the same dates, May 5-8, 2021. We hope this will be a joyful virtual event for those near and far to experience safely together. Stay tuned for details.
