2017 Band Retreat **POSTPONED**

Unfortunately, our band retreat for this year is deferred for a year due to lack of interest. We had 15 musicians, 21 participants, and we require 25 musicians to run the camp. 

Start planning for next year and we’ll try again then. Deposits will be refunded by September 9.

Details are still being worked out, but here’s what we have so far
