Saturday Serendipity 2018

While we are only sitting in the middle of the second quarter, we feel the need to plan ahead and know that you do too!  So, here it is!  Saturday Serendipity will be held:

Be sure to put this on your calendars!  We are still looking for new class ideas and new instructors. Feel free to drop us a line with your ideas!  Last year was a huge success and we had to turn some folks away.  If you have taught in the past, we will contact you early in December.  Thanks for helping us make this program a success!
