Did not attend.

I'm not crazy about the fact that there are some greedy individuals who show up the second the doors open and snatch up armloads of movies before anyone else even gets a chance to look! There should be a limit on how many DVD's one person can buy, so it's fair to everyone.

Lots of books sold. Even more ready to sell. Many people came at closing time, 3:00 p.m. Wish they had come earlier to look around and they would have found more books before the remainders were packed away. Good variety of buyers. Lots of happy readers!!!

This was really a great learning experience for my son. It was like learning with lots of fun. We will surely attend all the 5 sessions of Phun with Physics! Thanks Milan for the great work you are doing -:)

I really enjoyed the session. The instructor was very plesant and welcoming to everyone and people of all experiences. I would like to see more Yoga classes in the evening, and on a weekly basis.

It's great for the beginners. The teacher, Mr. Flores is a very nice guy.
