We do ask given today's circumstances, and in compliance with CDC recommendations, that you do not come if you are sick or possibly have been exposed to COVID19. We also ask that very small children be left at home for their own safety. We are also asking everyone to come as they are (My dad absolutely hated having to dress up for these occasions) So everyday clothes people!
