Upcoming Meeting/Event Information:

We are starting a little early on trying to get an attendance number for the meeting in September at Botetourt Funeral Home. I will update you all on the amount per person as we are working with our vendors to assist on some of the expenses in order to reduce our out of pocket expense.

This is always an enjoyable evening and a chance to fellowship together with the Shenandoah district.

Upcoming Meeting/Event Information:

We will be going to Gnome and Raven on Tuesday, July 23 where we have booked private escape rooms! If anyone has never done an escape room before, do not be nervous. We will have around 10 people to a team, and you will have 1 hour with which to “escape” from the room. You use clues and solve puzzles around the room to try to unlock the main door to get out. It is a wonderful team building experience and I think it will be an awesome time for everyone.

Please note, we will me at Gnome and Raven at 5:30pm. The rooms need to start promptly at 6:00pm so please make sure to give yourselves plenty of time to get there. After the escape rooms are finished, we will have pizza in a party room provided by Gnome and Raven. Please be sure to thank Ross Hensler from Batesville for sponsoring the pizza for this event.

The price of the meeting will still be $40 to help cover the cost of reserving the rooms.

If you have time, please fill out this waiver so that we can move quicker through the sign-up process when you arrive: https://www.gnomeandraven.com/waiver (you do not need to enter your email unless you would like a copy sent).

Please RSVP by Friday, July 19th so that we know if we need to book an additional room.

All the best,
Kaylinn Bezenar
Secretary/Treasurer, CDFDA
