Wyalusing Adult School Set for Second Year

 

By David Keeler

Coming in the wake of a successful and popular series of Adult leisure interest classes that began last year, the Wyalusing Adult School is set to open for its second year with another round of fall classes.

“We want to thank our teachers and the community for their support,” Mary Beth Voda said Tuesday. Voda, Kelly Bradley and Deana Patson organized the adult classes last year.

The classes are for adults 18 and older. “We’re urging people to register early,” Bradley said. “Classes fill up quickly and even worse, we’ve had to cancel classes because of low enrollment only to have people show up to enroll after the class has been cancelled.”

A booklet listing all the class offerings will be available at the Wyalusing Chamber of Commerce office, the Wyalusing Public Library and at other locations in the community. The booklet also has an application. Applications are also available at www.wyalusingrams.com, where a complete listing of classes, description and costs will be available.

While the list of classes is still being finalized, many of last year’s most popular classes will be back again. Here’s a listing of classes and teachers that have been confirmed: Golf, Ryan Knolles; Cake Decorating, Pat Eberlin; Dog Obedience, Rob and Sue Thompson; Scrapbooking, Lynn Petlock; Beading (jewelry), Lynn Petlock; Pie Making, Marsha Eaton; Baking Scones, Monika Kennedy; Adult Ballroom Dancing, Ron and Kim Whipple; Adult Beginner Tap/Ballet, Ron and Kim Whipple; Floral Arranging, Penny Hamilton; Write Now, Ann Vitale; Kayaking on the Susquehanna, Dave and Melody Buck; Auction Basics, Theresa Burke and Monika Kennedy;  Tree Identification, Jim Lacek;  Making Pysanky Eggs, Dennis Kochenash; Feng Shui, Sybilla Lenz; Freezing and Canning, Cathy Guffey; Sewing 101, Claudette Burke; Basic Color and Design, June Smith-Williams.

Classes are set to begin the first week in September. For more information call Bradley at 570-746-3815 or Voda, 746-1522.
