May 5-8, 2021

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. 

SUMMER FESTIVAL: Aug 4-7, 2021

Plans for our gala 30th Summer Festival are forthcoming. We hope to include field trips, a one-day fair, and virtual events. 

We look forward to seeing you there.
