      Good Morning Unto the Youth, Parents and Friends of the Middle Kingdom.


      I hope everyone is happy and healthy.  I apologize if you receive this more than once but I wanted to give you a sneak peak of the classes that are being planed for the Youth at RUM on Dec. 2.   I still have a few slots open so times will be listed as RUM gets closer. If you would like to volunteer, please contact me directly.  If you have questions, comments, or concerns please email me directly.  Stay tuned for updates. J


      Please feel free to share with anyone who might be interested in attending.
