I’ve talked with a few people, and due to the fact that this June 26th date snuck up on us, and we don’t really have things prepared, and now there is no good way to advertise or market the event, I’m making the decision to CANCEL our Picnic at the Depot.
We will instead work diligently on the September BIG event for our celebration.
So, no more worries about June 26th. You can cross it off your list!
Please see information below from the Scott County Partnership about a Scott County “Recovery Oriented System of Care” community workshop on 14 June at MASP. Note details to RSVP and attend this workshop.
