Next Workshop on August 5 & 6, Now meeting in Amesbury

The next workshop will be on August 5 & 6, meeting in Amesbury in the community room of the Newburyport Bank. We originally had planned to hold this one in Newburyport, but unfortunately on the last weekend of Yankee Homecoming. Getting into downtown Newburyport on the day of the parade was not a good idea.
