Lewiston Adult Education’s Winter-Spring 2022 brochure features Chair Zumba, basket weaving, chickens, and conversational Somali classes among its new schedule.
The brochure will go out to homes in Lewiston and Auburn by mid-January. People can also register online by going to www.lewiston.maineadulted.org.
The booklet features Lewiston classes on one side and others from Auburn Adult & Community Education on the other. It is dedicated in the memory of Edward Little High School teacher Larry Gordon, who died in the fall of 2021. Gordon did the design and layouts for Lewiston and Auburn brochures.
