If you’re interested, be sure to join the Facebook group prior to Thursday!!
    • Into The Wool News: the full attendee list will be posted this coming week, and the period for requesting roommates will be the following week. An email will go out to all attendees prior to the selection period to let you know the exact dates. 
    • NICU Noggins- be sure to check out the thread for all of the details! All hats need to get to Dana by 9/15 so that they’re in before the retreat. There are lots of prizes, and each hat set in is one entry into the prize drawing!
