Participant Information

Thank you for registering for the East Retreat which is coming up October 20, 21 & 22.  


Our retreat committees are very, very excited.    We are riding the waves of recovery to create a delightful retreat.    If you peek under the waves you may glimpse our cute little duck feet paddling so very fast, however, above the water, we hope to appear as elegant water birds gliding along the surface.   β›΅
