We have been asked to give a self-defense seminar for one of the Drake University social sororities and a fraternity.  They have reserved a shelter at Gray's Lake that overlooks the boat rental area for the seminar, which is scheduled for 2:30pm, September 17.

They may have 80 - 100 participants so we will need all the help we can get!

This will be an excellent opportunity to work with our community!  Please consider attending.
