From Cindy Robinson:
Don’t let the cold, gray days of January keep you stuck in the house. MAC’s first Winter Institute offers the chance to get out, meet new people and hear about a variety of entertaining topics!
An exciting schedule of classes is planned for this first Winter Institute, including basics of sewing and quilting, gardening, local history, tips for taking great pictures, scrap booking, local history, Musical Magic with WBOC’s Charlie Paparella, and more! Learn how to connect with your children on Facebook, get information on investing, find out what amazing opportunities are available through the Salisbury Kennel Club and your local library, and learn about user friendly apps for iPads and iPhones; and still more. A total of 27 sessions are planned.
Classes will be held Jan. 9-10; Jan. 14-17, and Jan. 22-24 in the Perdue Family Living Well Education Center at MAC. Three 90-minute sessions will be held each day, starting at 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. The cost is $3 per session.
