C.A.L.L. program releases its summer catalog
PINAL COUNTY, Ariz. - The temperatures are warming up, and so are the classes at Central Arizona College’s Lifelong Learner (C.A.L.L.) program. Scalding Arizona summers may incinerate the motivation to do much of anything, but C.A.L.L. is boasting some cool opportunities to remain intellectually active.
Central Arizona College continues to meet the needs of the adult community in Pinal County by offering more than 30 short-term, low cost, non-credit classes this summer. With three catalogs a year, adults are invited to register for more than 200 opportunities – classes, travel, and hands-on experiences. Non-members are welcome as well by simply paying a small class fee.
The classes in this summer catalog take place May to mid August and offer an interesting variety of learning opportunities.
“We’re pleased to present such a diversity of classes to the community,” said Vera Walters, program coordinator for C.A.L.L. “From computer classes to sessions on historic commerce in Arizona; from yoga to art classes, C.A.L.L. strives to have something for everyone. We have great instructors and a variety of classes to get people out of the house during these hot months and into the cool environment of the college to meet new people, visit with good friends and learn new things.”
Challenge thinking skills with Mah Jongg, or Word 2007; participate in a discussion group dealing with Election 2008; learn about acupuncture or try your hand at working with clay. See how citizens can participate in law enforcement, learn about animal massage or genealogy, or how to travel like as expert. Take an arranged tour of Harkins Theater or the Wells Fargo museum; ride a raft down the Colorado River of the Grand Canyon or touch a whale in the lagoons of Baja, California. Practice Spanish, cook with Chef Rei, join friends for lunch and conversation or travel to Mexico to see cultural sites and the incredible Copper Canyon.
“I am always anxious for the next C.A.L.L. catalog to be mailed,” said Ruth Walter of Casa Grande. “I know there will be many unique, outstanding opportunities for me and others in my community.”
Marcia Baker of Florence agrees, “I don’t know why everyone doesn’t sign up for some classes; we need to keep learning and growing, even after retirement.”
After May 5th, the C.A.L.L. Summer Catalog can be found at libraries, chambers of commerce or RV parks throughout the county. To receive one by mail, call Joel Beck at 480-677-7721 or 520-494-5444, ext. 7721 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You also can see the catalog online at www.centralaz.edu/call.
