RappCE is postponing all our spring Lifelong Learning classes.

We plan to reschedule them for fall. We will work with our instructors to select dates and times between Labor Day and Thanksgiving.

We recognize that you may have already enrolled in a class.  We are happy to maintain your enrollment until fall when we have established the class’s meeting times. If you cannot accommodate the new times, we can carry your credit for another class or refund you.

We can also refund you now, if you prefer.

We share your disappointment and that of our wonderful instructors who were all prepared to share their expertise with you.  We look forward to rescheduling these opportunities for the fall.

Spring 2020 brings a host of new and interesting RappCE courses as well as the return of some of our most popular ones. Courses fill up quickly, so check out the list below and register online. Registration closes on a staggered basis prior to each class’s first day. Classes are taught by volunteer instructors and are avocational, fun and interesting.

Start and end dates will vary depending upon the number of sessions. You can see the full class descriptions once registration begins. Classes are one to nine sessions in length, and cost between $15 and $60.  You can register online or else print out the registration form and mail it in with a check or your credit card information.

SPECIAL NOTE:  enrollment is limited, early registration is recommended as classes may fill up quickly.

Take a Class!
