ACCESSIBILITY

Alder Hall itself is not scent free but we are asking people to refrain from wearing fragrances or essential oils the day of the event. We ask that everyone do this so that folks with MCS and chemical injury are able to attend the event. Smokers should wash their hands and mouths with baking soda before the event. We will provide baking soda and scent free soap on site.

Folks who arrive heavily scented and cannot wash off the scent with baking soda will be asked to leave.
