The sojourn will arrive at Lock 60 on Day 5, Wednesday, June 6th at about 3:30 PM. The sojourners will lock through Lock 60, set up camp in the picnic grove and enjoy an evening in Mont Clare as our guests, until Day 6, Thursday, June 7th.

Come out, welcome the sojourners to Mont Clare and take part in the dinner and program on June 6th.

That evening, beginning at 6 :00 PM until 8:30 PM at St. Michael's Park, Otterbein United Methodist Church will be serving a delicious spaghetti dinner with dessert and coffee provided by St. Michael of the Archangel Catholic Church.

Community members are more than welcome to come for dinner; $10.00 per person will cover the all-you-can-eat spaghetti dinner with salad, beverages and dessert included. Pre-registration and payment is recommended to make sure there is enough for all to enjoy. 

At 6:30 PM, Raven Hill, a local bluegrass band will entertain the sojourners and guests until 9:00 PM under the pavilion.  During the band's break at 7:30 PM, the Delaware Valley Orienteering Association will provide a presentation on the sport of orienteering that will include demonstrations on how to use a compass, maps and a variety of the tools used in the sport. The programs are free for all to attend even if you don't come to partake in the all-you-can-eat dinner.

After the programs, the sojourners will go back to the camping area for the night to rest up for the next day's paddle to West Conshohocken.
