Heading into 2012

You may be visiting this blog wondering when the next seminar will be held. Here are the dates for the next three seminars:

February 18
March 17
May 12

Program details as they become available, watch this space.

Another item of note for 2012 is that we will no longer be offering box lunches for purchase. This change is being made for various reasons. If you have enjoyed lunching on the terrace after our seminars, consider bringing your own lunch (some folks already do that anyway), or picking up a few items at the Huntington's cafe to eat with us. We will still have tables and chairs and trash cans set up on the terrace for gathering and chatting.
