Christmas Greetings from Carlton Community Education! I hope this article finds you happy and healthy and witnessing the magic that the holiday season can bring!

Our first Zoom community education class was held a couple weeks ago, and it was a great success. Those that participated were happy to have something to do in the safety of their own homes, while also having that human interaction most of us are craving these days!

It is my wish to offer a wider variety of classes similar to this in the months to come. If you have ideas of virtual classes you would like to see or better yet, if you would like to teach one, please let me know!

December is traditionally a quieter month for community education programming so it almost feels “normal” at this time, but once the first of the year comes around, it will be another reminder of what our current norm has become. I look forward to the days when we can again plan events like the Mother Son Gala, the Father Daughter Ball, Winterfest and National Night Out, plus so much more!
