The 2019 Extravaganza will again be held in the Gallagher Center at the OES Home in Mount Vernon on June 22nd. The focus this year will be an echo of the WGM's and WGP's theme for this year; Nature's Life and Beauty. During the year the District Charities Directors will be selling tree seedlings an activity which will culminate at the extravaganza. The entertainment focus will be the animals returning to the Ark with each region selecting an animal pair and presenting a short skit on what Ark life was really like. (There will be voting!)
There will be tractor rides advertised as the fastest way to the Ark. And various games for entertainment including Horse Races, Pig Races, and various carnival or fair type of games to challenge the capabilities of our members.
We will also have the silent and live auctions which are always the culmination of the extravaganza.
