Center to host community showcase concert

Don’t miss the “Magical Mountain Village,” a community showcase concert. The concert will be held March 25 at the Ross Aragon Community Center. A pre-concert social will begin at 6 p.m., with the concert kicking off at 7. Bring a dessert to share during the pre-concert social and intermission.

Get ready for another round of computer classes. Becky is setting up the next Beginning Computer Classes, which will start the beginning of April.

There will be two of them because of the number of people who have already signed up. If you are interested, contact Becky at 264-2171 or 903-0788. There is still space available.

This request for another class includes those of you who have already put your names on the waiting list. The Wednesday class is almost full, but the other class, meeting either Tuesday or Thursday morning, has several vacancies. Please call to indicate your preference for Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, and to let Becky know if you will need a preparatory class, where the emphasis is on learning to use a mouse, touchpad and keyboard.

FYI — class time is 10 a.m. until noon and the classes will run from the beginning of April through the end of May.
