Craft Talk

We tried something new today and broke the group into smaller groups and had small discussions in breakout rooms. Bob Alexander’s group focused on the Vaccine priorities put out by the CDC as di Keith Kovacevick’s group. Karen Holtmeier’s group focused on should college and pro sports be playing at this time. Kristen Baas’s group discussed Bourbon tasting. I think I know which would have been the most popular discussion. I think everyone may check out the SlightlyToasted.com website.
