"You can't do it all today, but you can do it"

The Lion Dance assembly held this past week was amazing.  What an incredible presentation. We all loved it. Special shout out to Mirielle Cailles, Julia McCarrel, Chiara Goodyear, Alison Frost and Maddy Mercer who made it all happen for us. Thank you all so much!
