We are asking everyone to dress in Costume. “The theme is The Day of The Dead or Ancestors.” Dress like one of your Ancestors or in the Day of The Dead Theme. For some guidance on this please Google Day of The Dead Costumes for some great ideas. be creative. We will also have a Day of The Dead Facepainter, and during our gathering will have some prizes and Costume Contest.
We just lowered our Price for this gathering!!!
Jen and myself feel during the Fall and Winter time. People have more depression, stress, and Mental Illness raises. The reason why, is we have less sun, days are longer, and the cold brings us inside more.
Also from talking with our community many people are going thru a hard time.
So this is even more important to gather together and celebrate
We hope by lowing the price all that are called to attend will be able too.
