Learn to Play Mah Jongg

Mah Jongg is a game of both skill and luck that involves strategically matching tiles. The excitement of the game lies in the decisions that you will constantly have to make. Is it preferable to discard a tile and thus gain an advantage, or would it be more prudent to stay with a decent hand? Once you learn basic skills and strategies, you will be on your way to a fun and enjoyable time with other Mah Jongg enthusiasts. Registration deadline: January 9. Min. 3. Max. 4.

Crop till you Drop

More people every year are discovering the joy of scrapbooking! When “scrapbookers” get together to scrapbook it is called “cropping.” This hobby is relaxing while at the same time creates unique family and friend albums to keep and share. During this time, you will have the opportunity to meet other “scrapbookers” and make new friends with similar interests. We will share ideas and work on our own projects; however, there will be some supplies available. If you’ve been considering scrapbooking for a while but were intimidated by the prospect of starting, this class is for you! With a bit of practice, you’ll soon be creating scrapbooks that will be the envy of all your friends! Ages 50+. There is no need to call ahead just drop in! Drop-in fee: $1
