Tapping Day

Saturday, March 15, 2014*

2 - 5 p.m.
Saint John's Sugar Shack

Join us on the inaugural tapping day for 2014! No experience necessary, just bring your outdoor clothing and 'sweet' attitude!

We will start the day off with blessings and songs, then the tapping will begin. We hope to put out at least 1100 taps. We could use as much help as possible in getting everyone involved to accomplish this in just 3 hours! With that in mind and depending upon how many people show up, we appreciate everyone's understanding and help with making sure everyone gets a chance to participate.

Do you have a sturdy cordless drill that you are willing to let us use during tapping day? We will provide the drill bit and take good care of it. Email us if you have one we can use.

Don't Forget:
  • Wear warm waterproof clothes in layers as the area is very wet and muddy, and the snow is at least knee deep in much of the woods.
  • You don't have to sign up, just show up willing to help! Families with kids are encouraged!
  • Please park by the Prep School and walk to the shack (about 20 minute walk). There is not a lot of parking AND the road is known for getting people and their cars stuck.
  • Coffee, hot chocolate, and pastries will be available, bring your own mug if possible!
