Danes are very welcome, must be kept on leash and hopefully behave themselves.

Some of us arrive on the Friday evening before Fun Day and partake in Joyce's Margarita Bar in the parking lot. It's lots of fun so please come by for a drink.

On Fun Day, we all head out to the park for about 10 am. We have games you can sign up for, raffles you can buy tickets for and stuff for sale and then there's the free LUNCH!!! It's always a good time. Make sure you bring your lawn chairs or a big blanket to hang out on.
