Prevent Class Cancellations

Registered in a class and not sure if it's going to run due to low enrollment? Give us a call to see how many registrations are needed and then go to work!  Talk it up to friends; co-workers; relatives; other members of a group you belong to. You can make a difference and avoid your own disappointment and others' when a class you really wanted to take gets cancelled.

If you and a group of your friends have an interest in a class you've seen in our brochure with a timeframe that doesn't work out, let us know of your interest and we will let you know if it is possible to create a new class and explain what it will take to do it.


  • A minimum number of participants is required for all classes
  • The decision to cancel a class must be made at least 2 business days before it starts (unless noted otherwise). If the minimum number hasn't been met - we have no choice but to cancel.

Also, don't wait to the last minute to sign up - we want to know you are coming!

Well over 2,000 people take part in it each year. Keep in mind that we are constantly looking for new ideas and new teachers and are continually striving to make this a diverse and inviting program. We need your help to make this a truly “community” education program.  Let us know what you would like to see us offer, or what you could teach or any other ideas you think would help make this a program that serves this community better.  Thanks to all who have participated over this past year!
