Crop Circles:
Majestic, Magical & Mysterious!

It was with great disappointment and an abundance of caution that we POSTPONED our Crop Circles Fundraising event in March of 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic. However, we have contacted John Root, our speaker, and are working to reschedule for a time that is safe to do so. We will be sure to keep you updated here as plans evolve for 2021.
