    Bittersweet Festival

    I'd like to thank everyone for all of their donations and support at the Bittersweet Festival.  Our booth was a huge success, raising $750 towards our goal!  We also signed up 6 new students at the festival, had a great group of students riding in the parade, and our demo team was amazing!  Thank you all again, we couldn't do this without our wonderful group of students. Make sure to visit us on Facebook to check out some great pictures from the Bittersweet Festival!
