If you are contemplating life, Patricia LaVallee’s Life Like a River offers a time to look at your life in a fun, and creative way.

This no-tech class will be relaxing and informative. Live (but Zoomable). Patricia is a Certified Mind Set Life Coach and former MCST Adult Ed CNA instructor who shares coping skills gained in 35 years of nursing, coaching, and teaching experience.

Do you have stories to tell? You Want to Write, Let’s Do It, Lee Heffner’s Creative Writing Boot Camp, will help you put those ideas into out in the world. In 4 weeks, you’ll produce short pieces you have yet to imagine. An hour before each class, you will receive a prompt: a word, image, or phrase. Draft a piece based on the prompt and join your fellow writers to share your work. Tuesdays 5:30-7:30pm, starting Feb. 8.

Blooms Through the Season, with instructor John Fromer, is an in-depth look at how you can have fresh flowers continuously from spring to late fall. Winter is half over and it’s time to learn how to plant, grow and divide perennials, and work with corms, tubers and bulbs. From soil preparation to perennial borders to the importance of good and irrigation, this class will make you want to get your hands dirty in the garden. Tuesdays – February 8 and 15 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm.
