    Greetings! This afternoon I met a lady named “Joyce” at Rosetta Gardens. She told me about the “writing classes” held every Thursday at the Scarborough Arts house to the West of Rosetta on Kingston Road. Could you please confirm this and what are the hours for these classes? Do you still have room?
    Thank you very much!
