A word about the coronavirus and how it will effect these classes:
These classes are scheduled to begin the week of April 6 and run for 8 weeks. If we are still advised to remain close to home at that starting date, we will hold classes online via a video chat room. If you are enrolled in a class, you will be notified by March 31 if we will be meeting in person or online.
​ Go ahead and sign up! We will be meeting one way or another!
