Dear Bill et al ...
It was absolutely great to have ya'll come to Meadows and share your
talents. The students were so engrossed in the activities, they stayed for
well over an hour after school was officially dismissed. Quite a testimony to
their enthusiasm. Please send our heartfelt thanks to all . Hope to see you at
a future CVFF meeting.
Sincerely, Jennifer Fry
