I received an email on July 13th from Ronald Mulgrew, the volunteer coordinator, that said, "The Barrington Hall docent training classes scheduled to begin on Tuesday, July 17, have been cancelled." If this has changed please let me know.

Shalie, I've double-checked with the city and you're right: the training has been cancelled. No word on re-scheduling yet.
