The Creative Lifelong Learning (CLL) classes and events continue to be provided through Granville County Senior Services as the next quarter approaches.
In observance of World Water Day (March 22), CLL is partnering with Wine to Water, a non-profit organization located in Boone, NC to help build awareness of the world’s water crisis while providing a fun, interactive filter build experience. This free event is open to the public and is scheduled for Friday, March 8 from 3 until 4 p.m. at the Granville County Senior Center in Oxford. Facts about the water crisis will be provided during the hands-on experience as filters are assembled to provide clean water around the world. Each filter can provide ten people with clean water for more than ten years.
Although the event is free, there is opportunity to contribute to the cost of building filters and the logistics of getting them to remote areas around the world. You may make your tax deductible donation at the event or visit the campaign site at https://bit.ly/2SiWm8A. The campaign will be open through the end of March. The Oxford Rotary Club has already made a large contribution to this campaign. Oher civic and church organizations are also invited to contribute.
Other exciting and informative classes for March include the following:
- Nutrition for Living II scheduled for Wednesday, March 6 from 9:30 until 11:30 a.m.;
- More Practical Wisdom: Is it possible to walk a spiritual path in today’s world? scheduled March 28 through April 18 (Thursdays) from 10 until 11:30 a.m.; and
- The Trojan War: Myth & History scheduled March 13 through April 10 (Wednesdays) 2:30 until 3:30 p.m.
Classes are open to all interested adults.
