Workshops & Classes

All Classes have been cancelled due to the Pandemic, but are scheduled to begin in the fall

 

All classes are through the Lifelong Recreation Program designed for people 50 and wiser. However, if you are younger than 50, you still can enroll, you just have to register in person so the computer program won’t bump you out.

 

Class fees may change slightly from what is shown below. Financial aid information is available for all classes. Ask for the short form at the front desk of the community center.
