Save the date. We're back in the back yard! This is event number 20 for Williamsburg, and 20 is a special number in the PK world.

Come hang and chat around 7pm. Presentations will begin as soon as it's dark enough. We'll have some drinks and snacks, but everyone is encouraged to bring your own to share.

Bring your folding chairs or blankets. It's a tight street with ditches, so please park at Rawls Byrd Elementary parking lot, just a short stroll around the corner. Googlie mappy it, should be easy to find.

This is the official call to presenters. Get in touch through any of the usual channels. Hope to see you there.
