UPDATE: Canceled 11/4 FreeIC Outing Due to Rain 🌧

Hello!

We’re going to have to cancel today’s FreeIC event due to rain. 😩

The weather hasn’t been in our favor the last two months, and it likely won’t be for the next couple months #WinterIsComing. We’re still trying to figure out indoor alternatives so we can host events through the winter.(If you have any ideas, we’d love to hear them).

We were excited about today’s event, and we were excited to have you join. We hope to get a chance to meet you soon. We’ll keep you updated about future events! 

We hope you have a great day. Stay dry!


Come join us! To get started we'll meet at The Old Watertower, right near the benches. Before spreading out to start conversations, we like to take a group photo, so be on time. We'll be out there for about 2 hours, but stay as long as you wish. Sometimes at the end of the day, we like to get together to eat and share stories/conversations of the day.
