ASL Study Group classes are cancelled tonight Monday, Jan 27 2014 

ASL Study Group classes are cancelled tonight

Hello Everyone!!!

Sorry so last minute. I have had several people call or send messages asking if we are cancelling tonight. I have looked at the weather and it seems it will not begin to get severe until later during the middle of the night. The big concern of most of you is this is your last chance to prepare before severe weather hits. Please take time off tonight and get prepared. Make sure your pipes are wrapped, prepare a place for your outside pets, put antifreeze in your car, and do last minute shopping.

Keep warm and we will see eachother next week!!!
