A little participation footnote: as we have of course grown in size, so too has our activity participation. We have had an increase in requests to publish a "no heavy perfume/cologne" statement as a courtesy to our neighbors. Many people experience chemical sensitivity or have migraines from strong scents. Thanks in advance!
Have a great week and see you at the Lodge!
