Site Search Update

Board members have been hard at work choosing a new site for PALS classes, looking for someplace with the best combination of space flexibility and location. Thanks to all who shared possible sites with us to pursue. We have a couple more visits to make and hope to have a choice made in the next week or two. We plan on having everything finalized and announced by the end of June. Please feel free to contact us directly with any questions or concerns! I look forward to continuing PALS in the fall at our new location and am excited by the possibilities a new space will bring. – Merry
