The Winding Walk community is fortunate to have Concordia Church as an invested member of our community.  Besides their generous offer of Guitar classes here at Camarena, they are now planning some additions to after school programs in the neighborhood and they would love to get your input.   Here’s a message from their Community Life Coordinator, Melissa Salomon:
