What you’re saying…

From a Loving Mom:

My daughters take etiquette classes with Ms. Rey. They love it and love her. Thank you Ms. Rey for being part of my daughters’ life. You are a blessing.

Tom & Betty Jones:

Dear Paul,
Thank you for refreshing our memory of 5 years ago when  we opened the Center.  I really appreciated the pictures as they  brought back many memories. Most of the “players” have changed since then, but  the Center endures. You, the Board of Directors and your staffs are to be commended for your  dedication and achievements over these years.  As you know it was a  challenge to start from scratch and survive those early years. As you said  in your interview it took some time to determine the true needs of the  community and adjust accordingly. You are to commended for providing the  leadership to overcome those early challenges. Betty and I sincerely miss everyone at the Center and look forward to  returning to Tampa to visit the Center and see for ourselves the wonderful  accomplishments that has evolved from a dream that a small group  of Community Leaders had several years ago to develop a Center  in our area of Hillsborough County. Continue the good work and we look forward to the celebration of many  more Anniversary of the Center.

Miriam Zohar:

I should be thanking you all at the center! I am so grateful that you have a pottery studio so I can reconnect with a long lost passion of mine. Gilda Butler has been an inspiration and a wonderful teacher. She is truly one of the reasons I keep returning for more classes.
