Ceramics Club has started. Those of you who have signed up are in for the time of your life! Those of you who have not yet come forward, we are still welcoming new members. We have a large variety of molds from which to choose, two kilns for firing, a pouring table, and great teachers. There is no charge to join. Come for coffee and Danish on August 6 at 9:30 a.m. for our all-information first class.

Every Tuesday from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. a volunteer will provide hands-on instruction on how to use our two donated potter’s wheels.

The Arts and Crafts Club will begin on August 12. Something special is planned for the first meeting. Bring a favorite art or craft project you have made to share with us. Please call Janice Mortensen or MaryLou Arriola at 867-1396 for more information.

Every Tuesday from 10:30 to 11:00 a.m. Vangie Sanchez, LPN, is at the center to take your blood pressure. Stay healthy.

Free Cooking Classes conducted by Jennifer Chavez will be held August 9, 16, and 23 from 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon.

  • August 9 – Gourmet Meals in Minutes
