Salle Saint-George with Nora Willie MacLaren at Salle Saint-George.

I wish everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous (in all things) New Year. We will celebrate the 15 year anniversary of the school this Winter. Stay tuned for the details of this monumental event. My heart felt gratitude goes out to everyone who has passed through the salle doors over the years and contributed to the school's maintenance and growth. Thank you for adding your passions to this esoteric dream which began 15 years ago and has now grown into something far more than I could have envisioned all those years ago.
