Activities will include gardening, planting flowers, dorm cleaning, kitchen set-up and more. If we're lucky, it won't rain and we'll be able to enjoy beautiful weather! Even if it does rain, we'll have plenty to do indoors. Do be sure to bring warm clothes for the evening as it can cool down this time of year to the low 40s at night.
