“Program was great – easy ideas and ways to be able to do things.  Not overwhelming. Very engaging and fun! Had the knowledge to be talking about this subject. The materials were very applicable to work! Not a long class but long enough that you get what you need. Like not having to go anywhere for lunch. Snacks in the AM was great too! Just a perfect day.”    Elizabeth Spencer, City of Lindsborg, Lindsborg KS
