  2. What reflections can you offer about some of the learning?
  3. What are some things we will keep doing as we move forward?

We will start the day with the opportunity to connect and the chance to be present with each other again. Next, engage in inquiry to consider the challenges and changes we have collectively faced. Finally, we will create an image/metaphor of the future for CYC as a better tomorrow.
