WORKSHOPS

Whether you’re looking to learn something new or want to become part of a group with shared interests, we offer a variety of workshops that allow you to do both!

If games are your thing, we have Mah Jongg and Canasta, led by Judy Umansky. Love to read? If you want to keep your hands busy, come Knit, Sew, or Quilt at Craft For A Cause or join Beginner’s Quilting.
