Happy Valentine’s Day to our USMA Students

Friday, February 14th, 2014

Today after our 5:30pm and 6:30pm class, our Grandmaster and Master Maria provided our students with chocolate and sweet delights. They had a variety of choices, so the decision making was difficult. For our Helpers and Master Maria, who come in and help us whenever they can, they were given Dark Chocolate Bars.


Needless to say, all of our students will be having to work off the sweet deliciousness in the coming week.
