Graduates of the program will also be presented with diplomas at a graduation ceremony.
The sessions are offered free of charge to anyone interested. Classes will run from 6:00 – 9:00 and will include dinner. Sign up early, space is limited! Applications will be received until class is full or until February 1, 2010
