Our Spring Retreat was a huge success thanks to many volunteers who unselfishly contributed time, effort and sizable talent! Special thanks to Greg Gonsalves who lined up great session leaders, Reggie Keith who lined up all the lathes, Bill Berry for organizing the best raffle we've ever had and to Jonathan Bartz who coordinated setup and tear down.
Thanks also to the session leaders who skillfully and patiently shared their knowledge and to Linda Box and the "kitchen gang" for all the good things to eat. Session leaders and their topics can be viewed here (pg. 4).
Here are pictures from the two-day event.
