Five Steps to a Successful Open House!

Step 1 – Stay safe!  Before you arrive, please review the COVID-19 screening information at Wear comfortable shoes.  Put on sunscreen. Bring a water bottle.

Step 2 – Plan ahead.  Take a look at the Event Passport. We have over 50 different activities scheduled for the day; review the “passport” and plan out how you will spend your day!

Step 3 – Be ready.  Ensure you have your tickets handy (printed or on your phone), sunscreen, and any food, drinks and snacks for the day. While do have food vendors on site, you are welcome to bring a light lunch. 

Step 4: Be patient.  We have a lot of excited guests to welcome and it will be busy at peak times.  Consider coming in the afternoon if your schedule permits.

Step 5: Ask questions.  Don’t be shy.  This is a really great opportunity to learn more about all the things we do at CNL.  The hosts and volunteers love chatting about their work, so please ask us questions!
