Amanda Scott, who has been teaching our Essential Oils class for several sessions introduced new classes, Green Cleaning with Essential Oils and Essential Oils for Emotions. In these two classes, students were able to learn healthy alternatives and also make products in class to help them get started on their new journey.

We had a fun Cookie Decorating Basics class----YUMMM!! Hope the students enjoyed decorating these cookies as much as they enjoyed eating them.

And students in our Mandarin Chinese class celebrated Lunar New Year and their instructor, Winnie gave all of her students their own Chinese New Year red pocket, “Lucky Money.”
