I am sending the current Citizens Academy schedule to you for several reasons.
First, to let you know what is being presented, in case you missed a class.
Second, as a reminder of their upcoming graduation on November 17.
Three, suggest Alumni presence, to answer questions and encourage them to join upon graduation.
All classes are 6pm – 9pm, except week 7b, 9am – noon at the ALLERT center.
We do not want to overload the classroom, so please contact Stephen if you plan on attending any meetings.
