Hi Melonie,

I know I already responded to you on one of the other websites. As I mentioned I would be very interested in joining the MEPAP II class in the Spring.

I know of some people who took the 1st half of MEPAP I through Cindy Bradshaw almost a year ago, but haven't been able to get the 2nd half of the class put together. It was also set up at Pimmitt Center and went for 4 weekends. Would your 2nd half of MEPAP I allow them to complete the course?

I've printed off your information and will pass it on. Thanks, Terry
