First Annual Knox County FLL Open House – Mission Accomplished

We had a great time sharing our FFL experience with a lot of kids from the community aged 4-10 and their teachers/parents at the Gambier Community Center today.  Our team was pumped and hopefully we have inspired some kids and seeded another team or two down the road.
