One thought on “Upcoming Events

  1. I am still trying to be in contact with someone that might have a contact # for someone who might have more info about this avy1 class. I am hoping there might still be some openings and or a cancelation list going. My name is eric Thurmond and my phone number is 721-3085. Please call me if you have more information. I am also interested in taking your first responder class as a refresher in the spring. I eagerly await your reply.
    Thanks
    Eric T.
