      Tansi Richard,

      Please let me know if you would be interested in doing the same in the Fraser Valley. I have not spoken to the FVMA and this would be independent to all who are interested in learning.

      If you would be willing to come, I will seek funding for your expenses and you can specify what you would like the attendee’s to supply in order to participate.

      Till our paths cross,

      Lori ^_^

    This is a great event and I am trying to map out the logistics in order to attend on Nov. 19th.

    Sounds exciting and cultural to “boot”
