Learn to Play Bridge

There are many reasons why you should learn Bridge. It offers the suspense of poker, the cerebral qualities of chess and the excitement of athletic sports, all in a sociable setting where you’re a participant, not just a spectator. But most importantly, it is so much fun! That’s why it’s the world’s most popular card game. In the Beginner class, you will understand the card play involved, play of the hand and bidding tools. You will be well on your way to becoming a Bridge player. In the Intermediate class, you will improve your problem-solving skills. Ages 50+. Instructor: Paul Knepper. Registration deadline: July 1. Min. 8. Max. 16.

Curious About Crochet

One of the greatest things about crochet is that you don’t have to invest in fancy, new materials or find room in your house to store a bunch of equipment. With just a simple hook, a skein of yarn, and a comfy place to sit, you can begin enjoying all the benefits this craft provides. In the Beginner class you will learn a few basic stitches and how to read a pattern. Please bring to class a size K crochet hook and one skein of 4-ply yarn in a light color. Beginner 2 is for those who know the basic stitches and can read a basic pattern. You will learn to crochet stand-up flowers and various stitches to make afghans or pillows. Bring your “yarn stash” (especially green for leaves) and hooks. (Once you’ve learned to crochet, join us on Wednesdays and Fridays for Hooked on Crochet, see below.) Instructor: Berniece Wilkins. Ages 50+.  Registration deadlines: May 29 and 31.  Min. 4. Max. 5.

Crop till you Drop

Tuesdays, 1:00-3:00 p.m., June 25-August 27 

Community Center, 233 W. Main St.

Discover the joy of scrapbooking! As a hobby, it is as relaxing as it is creative and it preserves memories to look back on for years to come.  When crafters get together to scrapbook it is called “cropping.”  Whether you are a seasoned pro or just thinking about creating your first scrapbook, come join the fun!  Just bring your supplies (some supplies will be made available) and your imagination and we’ll provide any help you need to pull your project together. Ages 50+.  There is no need to call ahead just drop in!  Drop-in fee: $1


Writing Your Memoirs

You don’t need to have a hardscrabble youth or eccentric parents to write a memoir. You don’t need to have lived a life of drama . . . and you don’t have to publish it. A memoir is about handing over your life to someone and saying, “This is what I went through, this is who I am, and maybe you can learn something from it.” It’s about creating a legacy that doesn’t have dollar signs in front of it but has a far greater residual value for family and friends.  It’s a gift that only you can share. Let author Linda Wade help you put pen to paper and begin to tell your story. Ages 50+.  Registration deadline: July 3.   Min. 6. Max. 12.
