Get-A-Way Days

Everyone needs a break, a time to get-a-way, learn something new or do something you really enjoy.  Get-A-Way days offer a "mini retreat"... so come, let your soul be renewed, refreshed and revived!  Make a new friend or reconnect with an old friend as you choose from a wide variety of programs.

Please note that several events are planned for the same day.  Bring your whole family, bring a friend or come alone.
