In Conclusion

Thank you so much for a wonderful evening last night. It was fun and interesting, and I know the debaters had a great time. The zine looked great, and I'm happy the kids got to have a copy. I hope you and your guests had a good time. I wish you and Ryan the best of success for the remainder of the 50 parties! What a great idea, and I am thrilled I was able to experience one of them.

Best Regards,

Tess Gilman
