Sharpen your mind and enjoy a fun time of playing cards from 5:15 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 7, at the North Webster Public Library when the Euchre Club meets. This adult group meets the first Tuesday of each month for a rousing round robin game of Euchre. Bring snacks to share and be prepared to have a good time making new friends.
The NWPL is once again partnering with the North Webster Community Center to offer another Women’s Self-Defense Class from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 11, in the community center banquet hall. Brian Gagye, owner of Special O.P.S. K-9 Academy in North Webster, will be teaching the class.
A former U.S. Marine and police officer, Gagye will show women how to recognize and avoid potentially dangerous situations and how to defend themselves against attack. This hands-on class is designed for women of all ages, from 12 years old and up. Tennis shoes and comfortable clothing should be worn.
The cost is $10 per student, and those under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Sign up for this life-saving class at the NWCC office by Aug. 6. Advance registration is required, and the class fee is due when you register.
