Drawn from the proven content of Franklin Covey’s flagship leadership-development program, the Leadership Modular Series, this program includes the following instructor-led training modules: 1. The 4 Imperatives of Great Leaders 2. Inspiring Trust 3. Clarifying Your Team’s Purpose and Strategy 4. Closing the Execution Gap 5. Building Process Excellence 6. Unleashing Talent 7.

John Marshall John Marshall, an ardent Federalist along with George Washington and Alexander Hamilton, took an embarrassingly weak Supreme Court and made it equal to the other two branches of government. He did for the justice system what Hamilton did for the financial system. But he was so much more than American’s longestserving and most powerful Chief Justice. He served in all three branches of government as a congressman and as John Adams’ Secretary of State. And he stood with George Washington at Valley Forge. His is a truly amazing story, that of a giant among giants.

Sam Houston Sam Houston was president of a country - the Republic of Texas, governor of two states, a congressman and senator, and a military hero who received four wounds in the service of his country. Friend to Andrew Jackson, he was a larger than life western hero with many virtues - loyalty among them - and a basketful of vices, including a penchant for strong whisky and lots of it. He was a man of character who shaped much of the early southwest. Tuition: $19 Sessions: 1 Course: 25517 J. Rath Fri. 5/3 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM HCC - Edgewood Hall, Rm. 132

Perhaps the most fascinating character to emerge from the American Revolution was its bravest warrior and greatest traitor. Why did Benedict Arnold do what he did? This session traces the rise and fall of Arnold, his lovely wife Peggy and the flamboyant British officer, Major John Andre. Arnold’s capture of Fort Ticonderoga, his march on Canada, bravery at Saratoga, and treachery at West Point will all be discussed. George Washington admired and trusted Benedict Arnold - for a while - and so might you! Tuition: $19 Sessions: 1 Course: 25513 J. Rath Fri. 2/15 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM HCC - Edgewood Hall, Rm. 132

Aaron Burr Aaron Burr’s treachery makes Benedict Arnold’s look tame by comparison. A schemer and plotter all of his life, this New England blue blood not only killed Alexander Hamilton in America’s most famous duel, he plotted the greatest act of treason in the history of the United States. Had he succeeded in his plans, our country, whatever country it might be, would be very different today. This session focuses on who Aaron Burr was and looks at his relationships with some of America’s most revered leaders from George Washington and Alexander Hamilton to Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson.

COMMUNITY EDUCATION James Wilkinson Everyone knows about Benedict Arnold and Aaron Burr, but few have heard of James Wilkinson who bested them both in treachery. Considered a Revolutionary War hero (although he never did anything heroic), Wilkinson turned traitor in 1787 and was a double agent on the Spanish payroll and a co-conspirator in Aaron Burr’s schemes. And all this happened while Wilkinson was General of the Army and Governor of the Louisiana Territory. The twists and turns in his career failed in the end to make him famous, but guarantee to make him interesting. Tuition: $19 Sessions: 1 Course: 25515 J.

This session details Custer’s generalship during the American Civil War and the subsequent events leading up to his demise at the Battle of Little Bighorn in 1876. Did Custer really save the Union army from defeat at Gettysburg? Could Custer have come out on top at Little Bighorn and changed the course of history a second time?

Advanced Rider Course This course is the civilian version of the Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s military sport bike course, but it can be taken on any stock street legal motorcycle. It is a course designed for experienced riders. For the purposes of this course, an experienced rider is one who has the basic skills and is a current rider with a motorcycle license. The Advanced Rider Course is designed to compliment and build on the skills learned and practiced in other rider courses. Special emphasis is given to self-assessment, risk management, rider behavior, riding strategies, and overall skills development, particularly in braking, cornering, and swerving techniques. Students use their own bikes and get feedback from very experienced instructors. A motorcycle license is required. Recent real time mileage on a personal motorcycle is a must, and students must be able to demonstrate good basic skills to be allowed to continue. The class covers 3 hours of classroom instruction, a break for lunch, and 5 hours on the range. License, registration, and insurance will be checked before class. Proper attire includes DOT certified helmet, protective eyewear, fullfingered gloves, long pants, long-sleeved shirt or jacket, and sturdy over-the-ankle boots. Parental or guardian approval, in writing, is required for participants under age 18. Personal motorcycles must be street legal, in good operating condition, and pass a routine pre-ride check given as a part of the course. Because of the high level of traction required, the riding activities will NOT be conducted if the riding surface is wet. The classroom activities will be conducted and the riding portion rescheduled for another time. During the riding activities, each rider will be evaluated by the instructors on their ability to accomplish the riding objectives. Riders who cannot demonstrate minimum riding proficiency will not be allowed to continue or should consider enrolling in the Basic Rider Course 2 (BRC2). Riders who are not allowed to continue will not be eligible for a refund and may have to pay an additional fee to be enrolled in the BRC2. To complete the course riders must pass a 20-question knowledge test administered at the end of the classroom activities. Riders must also meet the objectives of the riding activities. Riders completing the course will receive a Maryland Motorcycle Safety Program Completion Card. Senior adult and disabled retiree tuition waivers apply.

Known as the Zumba “pool party,” Aqua Zumba gives new meaning to the idea of an invigorating workout. Splashing, stretching, twisting - even shouting, laughing, hooting, and hollering - are often heard during an Aqua Zumba class. Integrating the Zumba formula and philosophy with traditional aqua fitness disciplines, Aqua Zumba blends it all together into a safe, challenging, water-based workout that’s cardio-conditioning, bodytoning, and most of all, exhilarating beyond belief. Aqua Zumba uses mostly Latin music rhythms such as Merengue, Cumbia, Salsa, and Reggaeton, but can also use a variety of upbeat tempos as found in international music. Because of the resistance of the water, Zumba movements will be slower and adjusted to the water environment; however, the workout can be just as intense. Water shoes are needed for this class.

August The Book of Mormon Kennedy Center, Washington DC Thursday, August 8 2:00 - 7:30 PM The Book of Mormon is a religious satire musical with a book, lyrics, and music by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez, and Matt Stone. Best known for creating the animated comedy South Park, Parker and Stone co-created the music with Lopez who co-wrote and cocomposed Avenue Q. The show lampoons organized religion and traditional musical theatre, reflecting the creators’ lifelong fascination with Mormonism and musicals. It tells the story of two young Mormon missionaries sent to a remote village in northern Uganda where a brutal warlord is threatening the local population. Naive and optimistic, the two missionaries try to share their scriptures—which only one of them knows very well—but have trouble connecting with the locals who are worried about famine, poverty, and AIDS.
