Tie Dye Tuesdays

Every Tuesday our staff will be proudly wearing our Tie Dye T’s from Rrijoice Tie Dyes “happy clothes for happy people”. It is our way of honoring the “back to the landers” who came to the Ottawa Valley in the 60’s and 70’s and stayed and in that time have added so richly to the arts and culture of our valley lives.  Anyone who wears an article of Tie Dye will get $1 off their admission.
