A Polk County Community Foundation grant to SCLT will enable Lilburn to provide these lessons during the three weeks beginning June 19.

Lilburn remarked, “We are so excited to be coming back to Saluda. The positive feedback we received was overwhelming, and we are looking forward to teaching even more children this year, and giving more skills to the children who came last year.”

He added, “We have added an extra week, and are bringing a second instructor, in hopes of accommodating everyone.”

Classes will run from 9 a.m.- 6 p.m. (each lesson will be shorter), during the weeks of June 19-23, June 26-30, and July 3-7.
