Education is a lifelong process, and in Minnesota, Community Education has been at the forefront of providing in person, and now, virtual enrichment and recreation classes.

Our classes range from arts and crafts to retirement planning. Our instructors have a background and interest in sharing their knowledge and passions.

The current fall catalog has the highest number of enrichment and recreation opportunities ever provided for our citizens. We also have a new platform for registering in our courses online.

If you have not signed up for a class since August 2021, you will need to create a new account with your current information. This should be a relatively simple process, but if you need assistance, please call our office from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Upcoming in-person courses that still have openings include bike maintenance, PIYO, skating lessons, family genealogy, creative photography, Zumba and yoga. Our online offerings in the next two months include creative writing, divorce in Minnesota and real estate purchasing and selling.

Our winter Lumberlog, which comes out in December, will have additional opportunities starting in January. If there is a particular course you would be interested in taking that is not currently offered, please give us a call at 218-879-1261, and we will see if we can find an instructor.

If you have a great idea for a future class that you want to teach, please do not hesitate to contact us, as well. If you have lost your Lumberlog, you can always go to our website cloquetcommunityed.com to see all of our classes.
