Our time at Rhoneymeade was a very informative, casual and pleasant experience. The Executive Director was great, the Program coordinators were knowledgeable and charismatic... over all one of the best ways my Husband I have spent a Sunday!!
Even the other workshop attendees were friendly and the group seemed to work really well together.
