This year, we've put our classes at the same time each week to make them easier to remember. If you have the time, drop in and learn something new. We keep classes short, sweet, and practical to make the most of your time.

Classes are free and open to everyone!

Check out our 2014 schedule below or on our website. If you don't see a class for something you need to brush up on, call us. We can point you to resources accessible in the medical center or on your desktop.

Don't forget to pencil us in on your weekly calendar. Hope to see you soon!

Sonya and Rebecca
