    my car has 5 riders, so we're full. if anyone else from mid or north Pinellas wants to carpool they will need to coordinate that with another vehicle. I think Loretta is correct, there is a $10 entrance fee for ECHO and I think some of the workshops have a fee attached. you might want to bring extra cash for the nursery and bookstore as well. bring your own lunch too. more details on the FB event page.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
