July 15 Tree Farm Tour Postponed to 2021

Due to continued concerns about the COVID-19 Virus, we are postponing the tour of the Boyer's tree farm to 2021.  We hope you are all staying safe and well.  We are fortunate to have tree farms that provide us opportunities to be outside for fresh air and exercise.

Below is the tentative schedule for the rest of 2020, depending on Covid-19 guidelines.
