Fellowship – Great Brook Farm in Carlisle
The Clarendon Hill outreach committee is planning a family-friendly get-together at Great Brook Farm in Carlisle on Saturday, September 14 from 1 to 4 pm and we’d love for you to join us!
A group of us went last year and had a great time picnicking and seeing the sights (which includes an active dairy farm, barn tours, hiking trails, and an ice cream stand). For more information and directions, see their website: http://www.mass.gov/eea/agencies/dcr/massparks/region-north/great-brook-farm-state.html. The only charge is a $2-per-car parking fee (not including any ice cream or other treats). Bring yourself, any friends who’d like to join you and a picnic lunch if you’d like (they have picnic tables). We will also have ride-shares leaving Clarendon Hill at 12:30 and returning about 4:00 pm.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you can join us for our first fellowship event this fall!
