2pm on a Warm Tuesday in spring. June 10, 2014
This is our last get-together this 2013-2014 school year for craft group. Today we gathered in the gazebo outside of The Company of Angels store to bid Rachel Skelly goodbye.
Rachel has been an important part of our Waldorf School of Orange County community for 18 years! Among other things, she has been working at our beautiful Company of Angels Store and help start our Waldorf School of Orange County craft group. Now that her baby has graduated 12th grade and is heading off to college in England, Rachel is moving on to new adventures. She told me she will still come back for craft group, yay!
