We hope all of you are safely recovering. We have heard from most of you or heard from you through others. And many thanks for the kind offers of assistance. We feel our damages and losses are manageable and our hearts go out to those that lost so much.
Since many of you, like us, are still dealing with recovery efforts we decided to cancel our group classes this week. We are teaching a few private lessons and we will hold our Sunday Technique Class.
There are a number of changes to scheduled events. We will try to update you when we have more information. Some examples: The friends of again dance scheduled for this past Saturday has been postponed. The Dance scheduled this Friday that the Minesott Golf Club has been postponed.
