NEW CONCORD — As the days cool and the leaves change color, the New Concord Area Arts and Recreation District will begin its fall programs for both adults and children.
Information about children’s programs have been sent home from school, but programs also are gearing up for adults as early as next week.
On Monday, Sept. 9, for example, a “couples dancing” class will begin while a quilting class unfolds on Tuesday. Later in the week, on Saturday, Sept. 13, a wire-jewelry crafting class starts up.
For details about these classes or for more information, log on to http://www.ncaard.org/ and register early so that class materials will be ready. Many classes have a required minimum number of registrants for the class to proceed. So, pre-registration is essential.
In addition to the new classes, beginning yoga continues on Wednesdays at 7 p.m. at the New Concord United Methodist Church. Meanwhile, intermediate yoga continues on Mondays at 7 p.m. at Larry Miller Intermediate School. Because these are on-going classes, no pre-registration is necessary — just dress comfortably, bring a yoga mat, and arrive a little early to fill out the registration form.
Looking ahead, John Hickenbottom’s “Snakes Alive!” program will step out at the Village Reservoir on Saturday, Oct. 19 and “Fall Fairy Houses” on Saturday, Oct. 25. A fall foliage hike will be announced when the date is finalized.
