What’s New for the New Year

It is that time again; the beginning of a new year and a time to start fresh and begin new things.  The year behind us was full of many changes some wonderful and others not so wonderful, but we survived.  We lost a lot this last year, but we have a lot to look forward to in the year ahead and we are full of hope.  Here are some new things that we will have going on in 2018.   As Victoria so eloquently told you in an earlier post, we will be having a Pop Up Library every Monday from 3:30 pm to 6 pm starting on the 22nd of this month.  Directly after this, our beloved Cindy Groover will be teaching ESL again from 6 pm to 7:30 pm.  It will be a basic level class.  All of this will be held at the Cypress Trails United Methodist Church.  AARP will still be helping with taxes this year, but they will be at The St.
