The Council on Aging is offers a weekly Woodcarving program. Every Thursday the all men group (ladies are invited) meet at 9:30am and they carve and talk. Often times there is more talking than carving.
The instructor suggests anyone who has any interest in woodcarving to drop in on the carving group on any Thursday morning to see how the group works together.
Has the art of knitting disappeared? Knitting is alive and well. If you are interested in learning how to knit, you are invited to join the group every Wednesday at 2pm. Our long time knitting instructor, Judy Lorantos will teach you and work with you to create a perfect gift for the holidays. The Center has practice yarn and needles for your first project, so all you need to do is be here!
If you enjoy a lively discussion about a classic read, join the Great Books Club. Meetings are held in the Center library on the first Thursday of the month at 1:00pm.
