 June 2017 BOW Workshop at Lorado Taft Field Campus

BOWJune2017.jpg
According to suggestion box comments, the June BOW workshop was a success for a majority of participants. There were some snags and situations during the workshop which made it more stressful to manage. But, as long as the participants enjoyed themselves and learned some good things in their classes, everything is good! We even set a record with the oldest participant to attend an Illinois BOW workshop.....Lorraine Halford, 92 years old (center picture in chair). We should all be so lucky to have Lorraine's abilities, attitude, and zest for life when we are in our '90's! Thanks to all our BOW instructors for their time and efforts!
