Arlington Rug Programs
The Arlington RUG had a cycle of elementary programs that were
repeated throughout the years. It appears that they have discontinued
this recently to concentrate on a wider range of topics.
A typical program consists of:
- 9 - 10 AM: A "Basic Information Session"
- 10 - 10:30 "Q&A Break"
