Dear Vince:


Just a note to thank you for providing California Tribal TANF Partnership with such a GREAT soapstone carving workshop; all 25 participants had a great time. 


Vince, since this workshop consisted of entire family units with various ages, it still captivated all their attention, all were able to walked away with a finished project at the end of the evening,  that will rekindle the time they spend together as a family unit – priceless!


It was great to hear them talking, laughing and asking questions. . . the photos tell the story, or should I say, the “smile” tells the story.


A couple of the quotes from the kids:


“Can we do this again – soon?”


“I never knew I could do this (carving), I really like it”.


“I hope this is a class we can do every month”.


From the parents:


“Thank you CTTP for providing the class, our family had a really nice time and look forward to doing this again!”


“How many projects can we do tonight – more than one?!”


Needless to say, Vince, we need to reschedule and get you on the calendar monthly here at California Tribal TANF Partnership!


Best Regards,
