I have an extra HOPE ticket for sale (I paid $170), because my friend accidentally double booked his weekend.

Anyone wanting to come to HOPE, let me know if you'd like to buy my ticket so I don't worry about selling it anymore!

I look forward to seeing many of you there as usual.  The MARCH exhibit has always been a highlight, always attracting interesting/interested folks of all ages for great teachings and reminiscings.
