    It was so wonderful to view the informative talks with like-minded folks. We were all engaged and interested in how we can make a difference.

    It is unfortunate that so many of you missed this special event that
    Gerri allowed us to be a part of today. Last year we were only one of three venues in all of California to be able to see a live feed of this very meaningful TEDx. You will have to wait months to see what we learned today. I hope that more of you will attend next year.

    I missed some of it, but the speakers I heard were very informative. Nice audience gathered. The snacks, hot beverages, and Daily Greenz fresh foods were really delicious! Thanks!
