Fall 2021 Classes
Thursdays @ Eastminster Presbyterian Church, 30 September
Fridays@ Ascension Lutheran Church, 1 October
The fall term schedule of classes, descriptions, and times are now available for viewing and registration.
Click your mouse on the CLASSES tab on the toolbar above and then select Thursday or Friday to view the classes.
There are no paper registration forms to complete! If you are reading this, you're half way to registering for the class you want. On Wednesday morning, 15 September, there will be a tab on the above toolbar that says REGISTRATION. Click your mouse on that and follow directions closely. Hundreds have done this in the past and so can you.
Some of you have experienced issues in registering. The first day of registering, 130 people signed up for classes. Apparently too many people were vying for the most popular classes at 7:00 a.m. causing your computer to stall. And some of you were lost in finding the correct registration tools (registration form and payment form). It's always a good idea to refresh the website you're on to get the latest information as it changes frequently.
Masks will be required at all times while indoors at our two host churches on Thursdays and Fridays. This will be a condition for registering!
LAST MINUTE ADDITION TO FRIDAY'S CLASSES:
604 QUILLING: Jeanie Grabka will be introducing us to a new art form - Quilling, which is the art of rolling narrow pieces of paper, forming shapes and gluing them closed. The shapes are then put together to make earrings, greeting card, pictures or mobiles. The class will make several projects; your imagination is all that is needed. Bring a small pair of scissors and a 12" ruler. Paper, quilling tool and glue will be provided.
Jan Case will once again moderate the Beachside Book Club at Shepherd's Center-Beachside this fall. The first book club meeting will be 30 September at Eastminster Presbyterian Church.
