*This event is striving to be scent free. There will be multiple tablers and attendees present with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities who can and will get sick if exposed to chemical scents and fragrances such as perfumes, fragrant hair styling products, fragrant laundry detergents, etc. We will provide unscented hand soap in the bathroom and we will be using unscented cleaning products. We ask that tablers, participants and volunteers come scent-free.
