Pizza Potluck and S'mores

Saturday, 5:30 pm

Students and their families are invited to join us Saturday night for a wood-fired pizza potluck. We provide the sauce, cheese, and a hot oven. You bring a topping to share and we'll make pizzas together to enjoy. Following the pizza potluck, we'll have a campfire and s'mores next to the lake. A great way to relax with new friends from your classes over the weekend, and who doesn't love pizza?!
