          ... a few city staff but people from various organizations we’d worked with and a handful of Philly’s government higher-ups. 33 persons in total. But besides Lark forgetting what NCCC stood for and calling our project coordinator Melissa instead of Melanie, we pulled off an impressive debrief.
