JULY 4, 2008

Note: First Friday falls on a national holiday this month. In the interest of simplicity, MCC and the MDA have established that First Fridays will fall on the first Friday of each month (seems simple enough, right?) In the event that First Friday falls on a holiday, the evening's activities may be slightly less robust than usual--but then again, maybe not! Contact MCC with any questions.
