Thanks to my Johnson County Historical Society school programs October is shaping up to be a busy month. 🙂
As a heads up, October is pretty much booked. I still take bookings for November and the first week or so of December, but after that I’m closed down until the last half of March. I’ve just had to cancel too many programs during those months over the years. [The weather could be bad on this end, or that end, or this spring for Urbandale it was fine on both ends and an ice storm halfway between parked on I-80. Some cancellations do happen, but we try to avoid it. 😉 ]
The Humanities Iowa program is a great deal, but they only allow me so many slots a year. Several have been taken already. So if you’re interested for 2019 let me know as soon as you can.
Just because I have those Humanities slots doesn’t mean you can’t book direct. I’ve actually had more direct bookings this year than I have in years. Get in touch for specifics. firstname.lastname@example.org
