On the Way to Silver Bay, July 21-23, 2017

We are opening up Pitt Hall, the ACC, and the campground for the weekend!  Whether you are on your way to New York Yearly Meeting's annual sessions held at Silver Bay or just want a low-key weekend, come.   We'd love to see you.  It will be a weekend filled with visiting, playing ultimate Frisbee, blowing bubbles, singing, playing board games, quilting, swimming, and even doing a few work projects.  In other words, think of it as a summer "Celebrate Family & Friends." We'll also have extended worship in Pitt Hall for both Saturday morning and late afternoon. So, find your space on the grounds of Powell House; mix it up; enjoy. You're welcome to come for half the weekend or all of it. Just let us know when you are coming so we'll have enough food.

Special weekend rate (2 ov, 5 meals): $250/families; $120/singles/commuters/campers

Half weekend (1 ov, 3 meals): $200/families' $100/singles/commuters/campers

NOTE: Registration page is set up for individuals for full weekend at $200 and group(families of 2 or more) for full weekend at $250.  A $50 deposit is required to secure your registration.  Just be sure to let us know in the "what we need to know" box when you plan to arrive - full weekend or half weekend - and who is coming with you!
