Patty Levine and Sue Manning presented their first training session at Zona Rosa. Four members and seven attendees spent the weekend complying with Delta's 12-hour training requirement. The training was successful and we hope to have seven new Delta members after the February 21 evaluation.
We were honored to have Heddie Leger mentor us in our first endeavor. Her expertise and experience were invaluable to our effort.
Everyone is wearing their coats because the heat in our room wasn't working and it was 18 degrees outside. Everyone were good sports and no one fell asleep because they were warm and cozy.
Special thanks to Clarence Manning who helped set up the room.
Seven teams were evaluated on February 21st. Five out of seven passed the evaluation with predictable ratings for a 72% success rate. Good job!!! The two other team will reevaluate in April.
