August News at the Winterville Center


August is heating up with lots of new classes at the Winterville Center! 

Basic Aikido

We will be adding a new afternoon Aikido class for kids and adults from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Wednesdays starting August 7th. Anyone ages 10 and older are welcome. Aikido is a completely non-violent form of self-defense that is gentle on the body. This would be a great class for a parent to take with their kids. 

Chess Returns

Chess returns to the Winterville Center on Monday, August 5th from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Anyone ages 10 and up is welcome to come and learn to play chess. It is a popular class for parents to take with their children, as well as for UGA students. Tomas Ramirez, Ph.D is the instructor.

Chess tournaments will resume on Friday, August 9th at 6 p.m. Come and compete both in nationally-rated and non-rated chess games. 

Basic Cartooning

A new class offered in August is Basic Cartooning. In this class, students will explore the fun, impact, and longevity of a storytelling art form for all ages. Learn to draw basic shapes, people, create storylines and characters, and evaluate different cartoon publishing formats. This class is for children and adults ages 10 and above. 

Meals on Wheels Congregate Dining

Our Congregate Dining program through Meals on Wheels and the Athens-Clarke County on Aging has been active for the past couple months and gaining new participants every week. If you are over 60 and interested in having a low cost lunch on Tuesdays at 11 a.m., please come by and get a participant sign-up packet. The cost for each lunch is your choice of a donation between $1 and $3.
