Member Appreciation Open House & Fundraiser

Sunday, Sept 26, 2021 | 1:00-4:00 p.m.

This year, instead of a holiday affair, we will gather outdoors under the canopy of the oak savanna in September to celebrate and honor our members and special guests.  And with the generosity of many local artists and businesses, our silent auction fundraiser will continue to be a festive way to support our programming.

Invitations will be mailed in August.Contact Jenny Kutter with questions about your membership.

In case of inclement weather, pencil in our rain date of Sunday, October 10. We will post an update on this website and email a confirmation to the RSVP list by 3 p.m. Sat, Sept 25 regarding the status of the event.

RSVP by Sept 22 Online Auction Sep 20-Oct 4
