Nothing before 8:00AM, Wednesday, June 2018 will be in the queue. REGISTRATION HAS NOT BEGUN until 6/20/18. Sending an e-mail before then will not facilitate your registration. Most establishments now do registration online and I understand why. There will be questions to be filled in on the e-mail containing the schedule. When you sign up for a class, fill out the necessary questions & I will send a PAY PAL invoice for the deposit. This is a safe and secure way to send us your $50.00 OR you can pay in full.

IF you send in the registration and prefer to pay by check, if you are in the time and date queue, I will notify you and you can then send a check. If we do not receive the check in 5 days, the next person in line will be notified. If you wish to sign up for more than one class, I will send the invoice reflecting that amount due. If you wish to pay in full right off the bat, I will send you an invoice for the total. You can let me know in your initial e-mail. Thank you all so much! Keep your fingers crossed that all runs smooth!!! It did for the Fall & Winter, and I think it was a relief in general.
