New Year, New Gathering!

We heard from many of you (and we happen to agree) that last year’s event was the best one yet!  Well, the planning team has been hard at work preparing for next year, and we’re excited to announce the dates for the 2018 Gathering @ the Grove!  Save the date right now,  plan to join us August 1-3, 2018 at Deer Creek State Park, and then stay connected to us here and on Facebook for updates and announcements!

See you Monday at 2pm!

Hi Gathering attendees! We’re so excited to see you on Monday. We’ve been made aware of some confusion regarding our start time. The gathering officially starts at 2:30pm, but we’d like everyone to get signed in and starting to settle around 2pm. We found something that had conflicting information…our apologies. If you can’t make it by 2pm on Monday, we understand. Our table hosts will catch you up when you get there!


Also, in case you missed it…this email went out today:

Silent Auction

The Gathering is right around the corner! I hope you are all as excited as we are! Don’t forget, we will be having a silent auction.  The money raised from the auction is used to give people the opportunity to attend the 2018 Gathering @ the Grove at no cost to them.  It is our goal to never turn someone away!

If you are interested in giving, whether it is a beautiful piece of art from your local art program, a gift basket full of goodies or a gift certificate; it would be truly appreciated.  Please call or email Beth Hackney to let her know what you would like to give.  She can be reached at or 740-385-6805  ext. 242.
