Questions about employee spinning class

From Julie Otte:

The Wednesday afternoon (3:15) spinning class has had light attendance this past 7 weeks. I’d love to keep it going if there is a desire for this wellness cardio class.

If you are planning on attending this class in the next 7 weeks from March 12 – April 23 will you please contact me so I can plan to either continue or discontinue this class.

If you have any questions please let me know  at
