An enormous “thank you!” to all the parents who joined us for our City Tour last Wednesday, to Billy Deeter, and to the FSP volunteers who made it all happen. The group had a fascinating trip around Brasilia’s architectural highlights courtesy of EAB alumnus Billy Deeter and MRBrasilia Tours. It was a terrific way for everyone to get to know each other and to learn more about the beautiful city they now call home. If you missed this tour, don’t worry! We will offer another city tour with Billy later in the year.
