I've been doing classes as well as sitting in on Presentations and more on Zoom with the City of Knox during "lockdown" and I must say its been absolutely fantastic. A zillion stars to them plus those who create this opportunity as well as the Presenters. I am looking forward to hearing a Presentation this evening by Foost.
