Be sure to save December 21st for the Annual Winter Solstice Pot Luck Dinner. The doors will open at 5:00 with the Children’s Lantern Parade leaving GIRR at 5:30. Dinner will start at 6:00 with entertainment after.

The bonfire will be started at 4:30, and there will also be soup available outside, for those that want to enjoy the fire (and not face the crowds!)
