Due to health concerns & the desire to keep our Community safe this holiday, The Mountain has cancelled our

in-person Thanksgiving Gathering. 

It is in the spirit of care and consideration for the health and well-being of You, our Mountain Community, that we at The Mountain have made the difficult decision to cancel this year's Thanksgiving program.

We are certainly disappointed to not host this year's feast and celebration, but in light of the rising number of cases around the country of those being affected by Covid19 we feel called to join society in the collective efforts to take a great pause.

Although we will not be together physically, it is our hope to connect with you in the spirit of this season. There remains so much to be thankful for.

It is our hope that soon the global health crisis will subside and that we will be able to welcome you back to The Mountain in a group setting. We will remain open now and through the Winter for personal and "family pod" style retreats. This option is available if you would still like to come to The Mountain for Thanksgiving week; however our kitchen will not be serving meals, nor will we be organizing group programming.

Our Staff and Volunteers are currently thinking of creative ways to stay in community with You this Holiday season. One event that has not been cancelled is our Virtual Silent Auction. Please do take a look at the fabulous shop-local items, certificates and getaways that our Highlands neighbors have generously gifted. And stay tuned for a message from our Staff and Volunteers atop Little Scaly Mountain as we do our best to honor the brilliant community that makes The Mountain.
