Lineup Updates TBA- Our organizers, presenters, chefs, and other volunteers have been working hard to put together a stellar lineup for this year. On the front page of our website you can preview what will be offered. Within the website you can look at last year's menu and workshop schedule. We'll post more details about this year's schedule within the next couple of weeks. We're just as excited as you to get this information out there and welcome any questions you have!
- One of the ways we foster community is in the kitchen. All attendees are encouraged to assist with preparation and/or cleanup of a few meals at the retreat. Signup sheets will be available upon arrival. As the retreat is fully volunteer-powered, we also love our super-volunteers who make a commitment to help out with additional shifts, whether in the kitchen or in the other areas we need assistance. As a thank-you to our super-volunteers we can offer a partial discount on the retreat price (typically 25%). It's a ton of fun to be a part of making the retreat happen! Email rylee@...
with the subject "RLSR Volunteering" to step-up!
Please feel free to forward this message. I look forward to seeing you all at the retreat! :)
