Join fellow Gashland family members this summer as we look for ways to connect, to know, be known, and have fun together! Each themed social group will meet a minimum of three times (once a month) in June, July and August to explore their common interests. Each social group will have a general organizer, but the groups will get to determine how best to get to know one another and have fun together. Each group only has 10-12 spots available, and depending on interest, may have more than one social group. See below for descriptions and sign up today!
