On October 28, 2017, we will be having our annual Monster Mash at the River Falls Lodge.  Starting at 6:30 P.M. we will hold a potluck.  Then a Contra Dance from 8-12 with a costume parade and prizes at the break.  Admission to this dance is $10.  Costumes encouraged but not required.


Please do not park, even part way, on the highway or the circle (River Falls Road or River Falls Lodge Road) including the bridge.  Instead park completely on the grass.  We want to make the roads clear for emergency vehicles to be able to easily get through.  We also do not want to have any problems with the law.  If possible, car pool to save on parking space.  Thank you for your attention on this matter.
