Evaluation

  • 3-18-17
    • Attendance: 85 (including teens who came to get cookies)
    • Notes: The stations worked out well. Have more tables in the lobby to decorate the boxes - people brought them in and it took up all the tables.
  • 5-14-16
    • Attendance: 80
    • Feedback and Connections: A lot of toddler families that usually only attend Pattie's events. This was a good opportunity to let them know about upcoming summer programs. We had a larger group b/c the local ballet studio needed a place to dance at the last minute so a big group came over to add a little pizzaz to our program.
    • Notes: While I'd prefer to have staff to help out and there were some other ideas I didn't use - There is a bird on your head craft etc. - this went really well overall.
