Senior Pipeline Tidings...

Open Activities

By: Maurine LeCocq, Senior Center Journalist

Have you ever wondered how many instructors we have at the Sr. Center? I did. So I sat down and counted the number of instructors listed in the Senior Pipeline and was amazed. I counted 28 instructors teaching 53 classes. Ten instructors who are members of the Senior Center volunteer their services to teach us a variety of classes. Barbara Albright teaches Beginners Line Dance, Intermediate Line Dance and Couple’s Dance. Linda Fitzjarrell teaches Mahjongg. Tommy Prisoc is teaching a class called, “Got A Computer. Now What. . .” Cecil Kearney teaches E-Mail Only, Intermediate Computers, and is there to help in the Computer Lab. Michael Gamble teaches Exploring the Internet. Fannette Welton teaches Power Point and The Joys of Going Digital as well as other classes from time to time. Derinda Peyton is Vice Queen of the Happy Hatters of Hurst and volunteers a lot of her time for this group of ladies. Did you know that we have an active Grief Support Group here at the Sr. Center? Dr. Joanne Pryor-Carter from Lion Hospice volunteers her time and support toward this group. Bob Shultz donates a lot of his time as a volunteer working with the History of Aircraft Group. Bob is also in charge of the Aircraft and Helicopter Science Group that promotes science and math in public schools. Janet Swain leads a Hatha Yoga group. The staff members provide a variety of classes for us. Diana Conway has been in charge of Crafty Corner, Bead Mania and Glass Fusion. Laura Gore is teaching Get to Know a Computer. Ron Beall has been teaching those interested in learning how to play pool, improve their game, as well as being in charge of the monthly Pool Tournaments. We had our first ladies “Powder Puff
