Great program! I’ve created these as events on the cross-traditional BAM Facebook page; feel free to use them to promote and sing about your plans!

You’ll find the overview here: https://www.facebook.com/events/259635321092379/

And the June 19th event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1543269832646754/

I’m happy to make anyone from North London centre a co-host, as this permits you to do more with the events. Just ‘Friend’ me (I’m Stina Verbena) and I’ll set it up asap.

With metta and virya, Christine (one of the 2 BAM coordinators for NBO)
