COLD AND FLU SEASON IS HERE NOW!!  Many are getting sick, so please stay home if you don't feel well- don’t share your bug!  Be sure to practice good hand washing techniques, cough or sneeze into your elbow or sleeve, and if you're not feeling well don't shake hands when greeting--greet each other from a distance! There are hand sanitizers placed throughout Wesley Hall and on the tables-please use them.  Thank you!
