Monday, October 18th we will have a FREE kettlebell demonstration and sign up for a 12 week class. Learn how kettlebells can help you tone and achieve all around fitness.
Plan to attend the free session, Monday, October 18th at 5:30 p.m. at the TaeKwon do dojang (above the Corner Shoppe) at 107 1/2 Main Street, Garnavillo.
Fifteen ladies enjoyed an English afternoon
tea, with traditional tea sandwiches, scones and a variety of desserts.

I'm not sure when the next "tea" will be, but you can schedule your own private tea with friends or have a tea party for little girls. Each party is complete with real tea cups, dainty sandwiches and desserts.

All you need to do is let me know!
