  1. At what time will this be taking place?

  2. It's 8-12 I believe! I know several students are attending. You don't have to go from the beginning, you can come later and/or leave earlier if your schedule doesn't allow the 4 hour window.

  3. Michelle is correct. I have corrected the post accordingly. Thanks Michelle!
