It's time to clean-up the dojo and get ready for spring (and Leon Brooks Sensei)!
Please join me on Saturday, April 11 at 11:00 AM for a dojo clean-up.
I'm looking for a few blue belts to help organize the clean-up (ex. make a task checklist, evaluate what supplies we may need, bring in some simple refreshments, act as project manager, etc.).
Questions or concerns, you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 585-905-1392.
