We are excited to extend an invitation to our second annual "Culture by the Campfire" event. Last year's gathering held a special place in many of our hearts, compelling us to recreate the magic. Immerse yourself in an evening filled with lively conversation, laughter, and unity at the picturesque Shawnee Mission Park. Come fortify our community bonds, deepen our understanding of each other, and leave feeling revitalized and inspired.
