Summer Summit Basics

Bring a chair and some water to stay hydrated. It’s summer time in the NRV. Sheltered seating in the Moose Lodge picnic shelter. Bring an umbrella if you might sit in the open.

Bring a personal snack if you wish. We’ll not be serving food this time. We will provide iced bottled water.

We hope that all are vaccinated. Please, wear a mask if you will feel it is needed. Many of us who are organizing the summit plan to wear our masks. We will follow state and federal guidelines current on August 27, 2022.

Be prepared to reconnect and enjoy being together again in person.
