    Time: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

    Welcome all knitters, crocheters, loom knitters, cross stitchers, felters, spinners, and embroiderers—anyone who transforms fiber into amazing creations is invited to attend our bimonthly Knitting Club. Bring your current project and chat with like-minded crafters. Please register only if you would like hands-on instruction in knitting. Limited instruction and supplies are available.

  • Computer Basics

    Tuesday, February 7th, 2023
    Time: 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

    Our computer basics course is a small group setting for computer beginners. In this one-session course we will cover elements of a computer, navigating the desktop, and using keyboard and mouse. Windows laptops will be provided for this event, or participants may bring their own devices. The morning classes begin at 11:30 am, and evening classes begin at 6:30 pm.

    Registration for each session will remain open until the class is full.

  • Writers’ Group

    Tuesday, February 7th, 2023
    Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

    This friendly writers’ group, which meets the first, third, and fifth Tuesdays of the month, is for writers who are serious about their craft and in getting their work published. Writers of any genre, from mysteries and contemporary relationship fiction to creative non-fiction and children’s literature, are welcome.

    We see this as a critique group meeting in a friendly and relaxed environment. There are many talented writers in our area, and we know that feedback from others is extremely important to them. The group follows a concept that has proven invaluable to the writing community. Participating writers take turns submitting work in progress, not to exceed a certain number of pages. Manuscripts are emailed to members in advance of meetings so they can be read at members’ leisure and the meeting hours are reserved for constructive criticism. This helps writers present their work correctly to agents and publishers. But even more importantly, writers tell us that this format also helps them sharpen their focus, harness their creativity and give them ideas.

  • Writers’ Group

    Tuesday, May 2nd, 2023
    Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

    This friendly writers’ group, which meets the first, third, and fifth Tuesdays of the month, is for writers who are serious about their craft and in getting their work published. Writers of any genre, from mysteries and contemporary relationship fiction to creative non-fiction and children’s literature, are welcome.

    We see this as a critique group meeting in a friendly and relaxed environment. There are many talented writers in our area, and we know that feedback from others is extremely important to them. The group follows a concept that has proven invaluable to the writing community. Participating writers take turns submitting work in progress, not to exceed a certain number of pages. Manuscripts are emailed to members in advance of meetings so they can be read at members’ leisure and the meeting hours are reserved for constructive criticism. This helps writers present their work correctly to agents and publishers. But even more importantly, writers tell us that this format also helps them sharpen their focus, harness their creativity and give them ideas.

    We see this as a critique group meeting in a friendly and relaxed environment. There are many talented writers in our area, and we know that feedback from others is extremely important to them. The group follows a concept that has proven invaluable to the writing community. Participating writers take turns submitting work in progress, not to exceed a certain number of pages. Manuscripts are emailed to members in advance of meetings so they can be read at members’ leisure and the meeting hours are reserved for constructive criticism. This helps writers present their work correctly to agents and publishers. But even more importantly, writers tell us that this format also helps them sharpen their focus, harness their creativity and give them ideas.
