Warehouse Men’s Retreat / SAVE THE DATE
October 20-22 in Montreat
The Warehouse Men are heading back to beautiful Montreat this Fall. There will be feats of strength, hiking, brewery tours, and all manner of manly-type stuff to do. And there will be some great opportunities to connect with other guys in the community. Matt Bradner is the guest speaker this year, so you won’t want to miss it. Registration will officially open in August, but go ahead and mark your calendars!
Saturday, July 15 / 11AM-3PM
Calling all history buffs! Come out for a festival that includes reenactments, WWI Historians, a color guard, food, games for kids and representatives from all branches of our military. Learn about how the building of Camp Greene, an assembly and training facility for World War One soldiers, changed our city. Admission is free and the food is reasonably priced! Parking is at the Old Dowd House a block away from Warehouse on Monument Street.
