Fall Classes at MPCC Offer Learning for All

BROKEN BOW – For community members looking to expand their intellectual horizons, hone a skill, or just keep moving, Mid-Plains Community College’s Broken Bow Campus will offer fall classes for all fashions of curiosity.

On Saturday, October 1, a woodworking class will help those interested to get into the spirit of fall; scraps of wood will be turned into festive autumnal decorations, from pumpkins to scarecrows and everything in between.

A country dancing class will kick off the very next day: Sunday, October 2, and will run every Sunday until the end of the month, for a total of 5 classes. Running from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m., the course is $30 per couple, and students will learn from the Wrights the proper steps for proper two-stepping.

The final two Thursday evenings in October, the 20 and 27, offer a helping hand on the path to financial security; the Financial Survival for Retirement course is $49 per person and promises to aid in clearing the fog in the marsh that is an uncertain economic future.

The course will help students insulate their finances from future tax raises, maximize social security benefits, and avoid the all-too-common mistakes when preparing for retirement.

A George Paul vinegar tasting will be held on Friday, the 21 at the campus, as well. The world-famous vinegar company was certainly not always so prominent, and those in attendance will be privy to the story while having the opportunity to taste and be educated about the different kinds of vinegar.

Registration for all courses is through the campus’ website or can be done over the phone at 308-872-5259. More information can be found through these channels and through the college’s Facebook page.
