Please be sure to pack your belongings before our 9:00 am start time on Sunday, as our agenda allows for only half an hour check-out period that morning.
  1. Please advise Elaine Harsch at if you are extending your stay before or after The Gathering so she can ensure an accurate guest count to our hotel coordinator. Please direct any questions about extending your stay to Elaine.
  1. Between 4:00 pm and 5:30 pm on Friday, all attendees can pick up their 18th Gathering of Light folder from Elizabeth Niemeyer in the parlor adjacent to the hotel lobby located directly across from the check-in desk.
