New year brings new classes at the center

There is a new Move Your Body dance class starting at 4:45 p.m., Jan. 13, at the Ross Aragon Community Center. Stay tuned for details!

Also, we’ll have a dulcimer class beginning at the center at 2:30 p.m. on Jan. 4.

Computer classes

In January, Becky Herman will resume the beginning and intermediate computing classes.

The beginning class is for those who are just starting to learn about computers and also for those who have taken beginning classes before, yet feel they need to reinforce what they have learned.

The intermediate class will cover a range of subjects to be determined by participants at the first class. A list of possible topics for discussion will be circulated; class members will then decide what they want covered in the following weeks, i.e. computer security, e-mail attachments, freebie software, word processing and spreadsheets and how to use them. These are a few of the possible topics.

Please call Becky at 264-2171 or 903-0788 with questions or to sign up.
