Very excited to be able to offer this to those of you who are not snowbirds! Do tell your friends! The lessons will take place at Trinity Presbyterian Church (Bayview and 401). The instructor is Lorraine Eaglesham whom many of you have met this Fall during the Basics and Intermediate I lessons. We could not be happier to have Lorraine teach this series this Winter.
