Women’s Recovery Retreat
The Women’s Recovery Retreat is the first weekend in August. It starts Friday evening and ends Sunday afternoon. One-third of the ladies that go to this event will go on scholarship. No car? No problem. We match the ladies up for a fun carpool ride to the retreat center.

- the “no-talent” talent show
- crafts and a charm ceremony
- and more…
