The balance of the fee will be due on March 20.  Retreat fees include lodging, all meals, use of Durward\'s Glen facilities and trails, and a special gift! All participants are encouraged to stay overnight to enjoy the full retreat experience (it\'s also the best value!), but commuters are welcome and their fee will include lunch and dinner each day. You will have a choice of arriving on Thursday evening or Friday evening. Cancellations received prior to March 20 will receive a refund of any fees paid, less a $50 administrative fee.
