Fall/Winter Rambles for Seniors and other Free Spirits

$5

with Sam Horine

Calendar Jan 14, 2020 at 4:30 pm

Walking is a good exercise; it promotes good conversations with fellow walkers and the opportunity to observe one's surroundings. So, for those with some free time, I'm organizing a couple of “rambles” a month - starting in September and ending in March. Most 'rambles' will be in rural areas with a few in urban settings. All will be within a 40 miles radius of Skowhegan. While most 'rambles' will take place in the afternoon, some will start earlier in the day. At times, we may want to carpool to a starting point. Good walking shoes, warm comfortable clothing, in winter - snowshoes and or ice creepers, and the yen to explore are the only essential elements needed.

First Meeting will be held at SAHS at 4:30pm on October 8, 2019

Every second and fourth of each Month

New Books, New Readers by Maine Humanities Council

Free
Calendar Feb 11, 2020 at 5 pm

The Maine Humanities Council, a statewide non-profit organization, uses the humanities— literature, history, philosophy, and culture — as a tool for positive change in Maine communities. Our programs and grants encourage critical thinking and conversations across social, economic, and cultural boundaries.

This New Books, New Readers series will feature the Wabanaki people.  The Wabanaki communities have lived on the land now called Maine for over 10,000 years. How have Wabanaki people asked and answered the questions who are we? where are we? how did we get here? And where might we be going? – before ‘Maine’, as ‘Maine’ became a state? How are Wabanaki people and communities asking and answering these and other questions now, after 200 years of living in ‘Maine’?

This series will meet 4 times this semester on the following Tuesdays:

  • February 11
  • March 17
  • April 14
  • May 5

Photoshop - Independent Study & Projects

with Lynn Perry

Photoshop students from the Adult Education Photoshop II class will continue this fall in a ten-week, “Photoshop Independent Study and Projects” format.

Other who have been using Photoshop Elements or Photoshop are welcome to join the group for project support. The goal of this independent study is to create a place for group sharing, support and experimentation, but not for traditional instruction.
