Thank You!

You’re invited to our free Summer Social, an afternoon of gratitude and togetherness! Join us in person on Saturday, September 4th from 1-4pm as we celebrate persevering through the past two seasons—made possible thanks only to your astonishing support and generosity.

At this casual, outdoor gathering at Willow St. Park, we encourage you to BYOP (bring your own picnic) and a large blanket to sit on the grass. Drop in when you can or stay for the whole thing—you can play games, compete in a trivia contest, perform monologue karaoke, or simply enjoy the company of friends as you kick off Labor Day weekend!

While the event is free and drop-in friendly, we appreciate advance registrations so we can get a sense of crowd size for COVID-management and send updates if guidelines change. Your safety is our top priority. It’ll also help us figure out how much space we’ll need for distancing and how much hand-sanitizer to purchase.

We’re ecstatic to finally come together after so long apart and to make new memories as we look ahead to our 2022 in-person season.

See you at the park! (Gosh, it feels great to finally say that again!)

TELL PEOPLE HOW TO INTERACT WITH YOU

Although this event is outdoors, we know people will have different comfort levels with distancing and interacting with unmasked people. We will have color-coded stickers that you can wear to let people know your comfort level with different distancing interactions and mask-wearing. Please find an SVS staff member or find the SVS table to get your sticker.

GREEN STICKER 

Wear this color to tell people: “You can interact with me unmasked, but please ask me what distance I’m comfortable with.”

When you see people wearing a green sticker, you may interact with them unmasked, but please ask them first what distance they are comfortable with.


YELLOW STICKER 

Wear this color to tell people: “You can interact with me within 6ft or closer, but please wear a mask.”

When you see people wearing a yellow sticker, you may interact with them 6ft or closer, but please wear a mask.


RED STICKER 

Wear this color to tell people: “Please wear a mask and keep at least 6ft distance when interacting with me.”

When you see people wearing a red sticker, please wear a mask and maintain a distance of at least 6ft when interacting with them.
