Registration for all nine clubs' members will be centralized on the Harvard Club of Fairfield County website, and is $10 for adults and $5 for kids 14 and under, including soft drinks and dessert.  You must have a concert ticket (either shed or lawn) to access the Harvard meet-up location, which is not included in registration for the Harvard gathering.  You can buy concert tickets, and get more infomation on the program and the artists, on the BSO website here.

The meeting spot will be 
under the large oak tree in the center of the lawn, behind shed section 11 and in front of the sound board.  There will be balloons and a Harvard banner to identify our group's area.
