Previous events 2019
1. Family S’mores Night
January 27th 2019 – Family Night S’mores, Games and Stories was so much fun last Sunday! The weather was perfect for roasting marshmallows outside. Also was one of our youngest members first time making a s’more! Circled around the warmth of a campfire was a perfect setting to come together, tell stories and make delicious s’mores. As the guitar melodies set the tone for a calming evening. We want to reclaim the joy of a community campfire, after the devastation the November 2018 Campfire had on our community. Let’s heal together.
