Class Updates/Announcements

Class One-  The McAdenville Community Center is currently undergoing renovations of the front lawn.
We will need to use the side entrance of the building.  To locate this, turn off of Main Street onto Park Street to drop off your child.  I will have class assistants and chaperons to help escort the ladies and gentlemen down the sidewalk and into the building which leads to the ballroom.  I apologize for any inconvenience; this was very unexpected. 

For all of other classes, we will use the front entrance of the building for drop off.
