In the case of rain, we’ll modify our meeting places slightly and move people indoors with social distancing.
What about food allergies?
We’re happy to accommodate any food allergies, please just note so on your REGISTRATION and we will plan accordingly.
How can you ensure my child is kept safe?

What’s the cost? What’s the catch?
As an initiative of Engage Albany to seek the welfare of our city, it is our joy to offer this event free of charge to the residents of the greater Albany area. Our generous members and supporters make it all possible. It does make planning a whole lot easier though if you REGISTER by July 12th.
