Reminder About Visitors

Sally sent this memo about visitors a few months ago.
Here's a reminder of the new rules.

"Visitors are welcome to come and visit between the hours of 11am and 4pm, with a maximum stay of 2-3 hours."

She'd "like to know in advance who is coming and what camper they will be with so she can submit a list of anticipated visitors to the Y for coordination of day fee and meals. The Y requires that each visitor check in upon entering the facility, sign a Liability Waiver form and pay a fee of $15, which includes a lunch.

Visitors are welcome to sit with their friends, however, they cannot participate in sewing or other planned activities that are part of this retreat."
