The first year of Central RED Society is completed, and it’s been a smash hit!
The almost 135 members attended classes on Civil War history, holiday appetizers, fitness after 50, incorporating a Sabbath into your life, ballroom dancing, and much more. Class sizes averaged 30 people.
What brings members together is a sense of camaraderie, learning, and fun! “My mantra for life has been, ‘I am learning all the timeâ€”the tombstone will be my diploma!’” says Debbie Sanderfield Farrow, a member from Oskaloosa. “Central RED has been an amazing opportunity.”
If you’re already a member of Central RED, take a look at the classes being offered for the 2014-15 year. There’s a great selection of classes ranging from ornithology to coal mining in Iowa to an outing to the Botanical Center in Des Moines. If you’re not a member, consider joining today!
