Hello, Antonia -

I for one am really looking forward to it! You're doing a great job, and 
your enjoyment really shows.

Regarding the Bardic Collegium, it was suggested that you may need someone 
to make sure the classes stay on schedule. If you do, I would be happy to 
fill this role for you. Also, what is next on your preparation list? I 
could help with booklets or handouts, if you want, or other things of that 
nature. Just let me know.

In service,
Anna bat Chaim
