Senior Education Classes Offered Free!

Contributed by Linda Myers-Steele

Senior Education classes resume a regular fall schedule. This program is directed toward adults 50+ years old, who are interested in keeping mentally active, curious, learning something, and having fun. No tests, no grades, and homework only if you want to. And, here’s the best part… the classes are free of charge. WASI (Wasilla Area Seniors Inc.) is kindly hosting the classes and the instructors volunteer their time.
