*NEW*   Kay's Klub
For years, students have gathered at the QP on Thursdays to take a series of classes with Kay Lettau. What started as a Block of the Month has morphed into a variety of formats, but the group has stayed true. We are happy to continue the Thursday tradition whose group dynamics have grown and changed and created lifetime friendships. Join in and be part of the fun.
