RWC - Vol 1 Update!

Wow!  Our first event was amazing!  Thanks to our tech folks - no glitches during our event.  We managed to record it two ways - with presenters via camera and room and slides with audio via computer.  Our first time presenters were STELLAR!  The theme selected in partnership with the San Mateo County History Museum created a wonderful frame for the evening.  Although our audience was very modest, we had a surprise guest from HQ - Stephen Leist, who offered us nothing but support and encouraging feedback.  It was a wonderful surprise and you can see video via Fuse Theatre's facebook page.  We will have the presentations up very soon!  Congrats and cheers to all our presenters, attendees and followers!   Stacey
