Reservations are Required for Classes and Workshops.  As stated above, we must pay the Venue on the Lake additional rent to hold any of these sessions so we need to ensure we have at least 8 attendees "signed up" for each session at least two weeks ahead of time OR the class or workshop may be cancelled.  Make reservations for any of the classes or the workshops on our website (northorlandobridge.com)  by clicking on the menu option "Make a Reservation".   All the above offerings are listed in the “Events” drop-down list so you can "register" for these classes or workshops EVEN NOW.  You may need to change the from or to date and click the Search button on this panel after choosing the event from the drop-down list to see the list of sessions by date.  The instructions for making a reservation are in the panel below the Make a Reservation one.  If this is a bit too much for you, send us an e-mail at northorlandobride@gmail.com specifying the class of workshops you wish to attend and we will register for you.   Again, it is important that we have 8 or more people signed up at least two weeks before to hold the class.
