March 30-April 1, 2018

This weekend has become a favorite of many F/friends and families. Whether you come to work and sing, work and play, or work - this weekend is for you! We'll have childcare for the young ones while we work.

The work: Build.  Design.  Chop. Split and stack. Dig.  Paint. Clean.  Plant.  Wash.  Make the snacks.  Eat the snacks.  There are always lots of things to do inside and out to get Powell House ready for spring and summer. Let us know you are coming, and we will let you know if you can bring specific tools with you.

The music:  We will rehearse selected parts of the Messiah on Friday after supper. If you sing or play an instrument, come prepared to participate. The computer recording will support our best efforts. Of course, we will be singing the Hallelujah Chorus through at least once on Sunday morning!

The scavenger hunt: This event will occupy us on Saturday evening as we roam throughout the Powell House grounds to gather all the items on the list! Families can participate together or split up into different groups. A special prize will await all those who participate in the challenge of the hunt.

Register by March 15th: $75/adults; $10/children & youth.

After March 15th: $100/adults; $50/children & youth.

Childcare will be provided for children 9 and under.
