Event description

Description

Situational awareness, or more simply, paying attention to what's going on around you is key to your everyday safety. Join the Mass Ave Merchants Association for a unique and completely free awareness seminar on Tuesday, August 29th from 6:30-8pm in the Athenaeum Building auditorium. Presented by Jeff Patterson, this seminar will teach you how to be aware, discuss an awareness baseline, identify "spaces", show how to penetrate those spaces, and provide tips to improve your situational awareness.


Open to all ages who are able to sit quietly and calmly through the 1.5 hour presentation.
