This is especially handy if your drivers license is about to expire and you might have to take the written test again. It’s surprising how many rules we have actually forgotten and just gotten away with. The class fee is $12 for AARP member and $14 for non-members.

New Gourd Wood Burning Class will start February 14th. From 1:00 to 3:00 pm. Cost of the class is a $2.00 Donation per class. The ancients used various methods to burn designs into gourd surfaces.
