Others take full advantage of the opportunity to curl up with a good book and read to their hearts content. Some play cards, games and do jigsaw puzzles. Others spend much of their time talking and getting to know everyone better.

TLC will be reserving two buildings to provide comfy accommodations for everyone to cook, eat, sleep and socialize. Costs will be shared by those who reserve - probably close to $25 per person plus pitching in some food. Some financial assistance is available. Day visitors are welcome.
