The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Ladies, enjoy an evening under the stars, cozying up to a campfire while sipping your favorite beverage. Hot cocoa will be provided, along with a keepsake mug to take home. Feel free to bring your favorite seasonal wine or beer to keep you warm.

Participants will have the option to play group games, make a craft or just relax around the fire. Whichever you prefer, you won’t regret getting out of the house for some crisp night air while reconnecting with friends or making new ones!
