      Hi Ori! I just tried sending you an email, but it bounced back to me for some reason. Send me an email at hmrodgers@fcps.edu with your contact info, so I can keep you updated. Mark your calendar for Saturday, December 14th. We’re getting the Fellowship back together again to go see Hobbit pt. 2. Hope you can join us!

      Hi Ori,
      Of course it’s okay for you to make comments on the blog! We miss you, too, and hope you’ll keep reading and join us for Hobbit 2! I always thought you could be a good role model!
