Salon Series II: Friday, April 10

Next Salon Slated for Friday, April 10.
Theme: "Elements"

SALON SERIES II is Friday, April 10th, 7 to 9 p.m. at the Ojai Valley Green Coalition Resource Center – 206 N. Signal St., Suite S, in downtown Ojai.
In honor of Earth Day, April's Salon theme is 'ELEMENTS'.
