Ready for something new in 2018? You can still find openings in the following classes, which begin on Jan. 2. Join the investment discussion to explore how current events are impacting stock and bond markets. With women dominating today’s headlines, it’s a good time to review the  20th-Century female pioneers of politics, science and the arts. Or sail into the pages of history with a study of Magellan’s 16th-Century circumnavigation of the globe. Commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I with a look at the composers, writers and artists who were caught in the conflagration. Listen to and learn about the greatest singing voices of our time, or immerse yourself in four films by Alfred Hitchcock. Try your hand at acrylics or watercolor, or learn the fundamentals of computers or Photoshop. You don’t need a partner to polish your skills in the ballroom dance class. Our many drop-in game and hobby groups require no registration and are great ways to learn new pastimes and meet new people. Two January events also offer great ways to socialize over music and movies.

With all that’s happening here this winter, there’s no reason to sit home. Sign up for classes online or stop by Tracy’s office to register. We’re looking forward to seeing you in 2018.

Founders Hall will be closed on Monday, Jan. 1.
