News Release for the Week of February 26, 2018



Do you enjoy knitting, crocheting and other needle work? Do you wish to brush up on your skills? We have a group of enthusiastic needle crafters known as Creative Stitches.  Our group of needle workers is more than delighted to help those getting started. If any this applies to you, please join us on Wednesday mornings from 9-12.  We welcome new members of any age, gender or ability! Class is free – no need to sign up – just drop in.


If you like music and like to dance we offer two Line Dancing classes. Beginner Line Dancing on Mondays, starting on March 5 from 2 – 3 pm.  This class is for the participant who has never line danced before. The absolute beginner will take this class and be ready to move on the Line Dancing class. Line Dancing on Mondays, starting on March 5 from 1 – 2 pm. After taking a basic class, or if you have line danced before, you will enjoy learning in this class. Register and pay at the senior center office.


If you enjoy writing, consider one of the two writing programs we offer.  Journaling as a Transformative Tool.  For many people they find keeping a journal a way to understand themselves, release stress, resolve conflicts or express their creativity.  Members will draw upon a variety of exercises and techniques to begin the process. There is no charge for this group and you are encouraged to bring a notepad and pen. The members will help to determine the direction the group will take. The group will meet the first and third Thursday of the month at 10 am.  The next meeting is March 1 and it is a free program.


The Art of Writing is for those who are interested in writing. Whether it be poems, stories, memoirs, essays or writing casual thoughts, this is an opportunity to share your creativity!  Come join us on 2nd Friday of the month. The next meeting is March 9 and it is a free program.
