It is hard to believe that half of the year has already flown by. So what is up for the next half of the year?
Spirit of Athens is sponsoring Friday After 5 on Friday, July 10, as the name says – after 5pm. The event is an evening of art, music, shopping, and dining. It is a Friday night for the whole family to enjoy. At the Center for Lifelong Learning, Elvis will be in the building. We will have free popcorn and you can stop by to talk with Elvis or get a root beer float from Square Clock Coffee.
Our Elvis will be inviting folks to come by his house when we take a trip to Memphis in September. The Memphis trip is scheduled for Monday – Wednesday, September 21-23 and will feature a trip to Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley. If you have never been, it is a great experience. The fee is only $229 per person for double occupancy. We will also be visiting Beale Street and Tunica, Mississippi. You will need to register by August 1. For more information call 256-233-8262 or register online at www.athens.edu/CLL.
Since you are coming down to see Elvis, you might as well check out all the stores that will be staying open until 8pm on Friday. Bennett’s will have drawings for free clothing, gift certificates, and more. Snapdragon Kids will have Snappy the Dragon, face painting, and balloons for the kids. We hope to see you there.
The next Friday After 5 will be the second Friday in August. The CLL will be hosting dancing in the street as we kick off our Ballroom Dance lessons with a Salsa night. Bring your “blue suede shoes” and kick up your heels with us on August 14 on the Courthouse Square. Our regular ballroom dance classes will be held on Thursdays, beginning August 20th. Call us at 256-233-8262 for more information or watch the web page, www.athens.edu/CLL, for more information.
If you watch our web pages often, you will notice lots of classes being added. We are working hard to finish the fall catalog by August 4. If you are not on our mailing list, you can send us an email with your name, address, and phone number to CLL@athens.edu.
Some of the classes in the fall include blacksmith classes, new sewing classes, several online classes and the new trips to exciting places. Visit our web site often, or stop by the Center to visit our staff and ask questions. We look forward to meeting you.
