What a wonderful class you provided today!! The kids practiced their handshake greetings w/Diane at Max and Ollies and did some demonstrations for their parents and us at dinner! I also LOVED the tour of the Crocker House! What a wonderful, dedicated group of volunteers you have!!
You wanted me to also remind you of my suggestion for a Manner's class outline of topics/key points/learnings for parents to take home and reinforce at home.
Thanks again for your patience and dedication to this class and the museum! We are fortunate to have you in our community!
