showing folks how "they used to do this" and all kinds

I am open for what we are doing for the open spaces. I
would like to see a quest for children and other fun
things geared for kids.

Yes, this is opposite Lindenwoods masked ball but the
newcomers will be gone just after 6 and as soon as
things are tidy I plan on heading over to the ball as
quickly as possible! I have very fond memories of that
event and am looking forward to joining in.

I am in need of a deputy or two, three,

is a great opportunity for one to get their feet wet
running this kind of venue.
