Japanese House no minasan,

How was "mamemaki" yesterday?  Hope you had a lot of fun.

I am finalizing the workshop activities and I would like to know when would be the good time to have a flower arranging workshop.
I haven't asked Kimiko-san (the instructor) yet, but I would like to choose the time most of the members could join. 
Last semester, when we had the tea ceremony workshop, Thursday 3:30-4:20, most of you seemed to be able to come. Does that time work for most of you?  Please let me know. If this hour works for most of you, I will try to have other workshops in this hour, too.

I remember that you are talking about the taiko(Japanese drum)?  Would you like to have Stuart Paton at uvm or would you like to go to the dojo (208 Flynn Ave. Burlington)
