Due to last-minute issues with the City of Issaquah, this classroom session will now be held as a webinar, rather than as an in-person event.

Please join this scheduled Zoom meeting online on Wednesday evening, Feb. 26. It will begin at 6:30pm; we recommend joining a few minutes early to get orientated and check your audiovisual settings.
