Dance the night away at the center

The High Rollers will be playing for a dance at the Ross Aragon Community center from 7-11 p.m. Friday, April 5.

Come on down to the center and enjoy a night of great country music and the company of friends.

This is an 18-plus event. A cash bar and snacks will be available during this event. Tickets are on sale now for $15 at the community center and at Happy Trails Lady’s Boutique.

Tickets the night of the event will be $20.

Computer classes 

Becky Herman will teach computer classes again in April.

The beginning class will start Tuesday, April 2, at 10 a.m. There will be one two-hour class each week. The format for this class is determined by the participants’ needs. A list of topics for discussion is created at the first meeting; subsequent classes are planned to cover those suggested topics.

The intermediate class will begin Thursday, April 4, at 1 p.m.; it will cover some of the same topics as were covered in the beginning class, but in more depth. For example, the e-mail class will focus on more advanced features, such as signatures and vacation responders, changing the look of an e-mail account, configuring two or more e-mail accounts to funnel into one, attachments and adding a picture to an account. This class, like the one above, involves a two-hour session, once a week.

Call Becky, 264-2171 or 903-0788, to reserve a space in either (or both) classes.
