Oneonta boosters offer classes as fundraiser

The Oneonta High School Academic Boosters Club has scheduled a weekend of enrichment as its spring fundraiser. Offering 14 courses at $10 an hour, the club hopes to expand community interest while at the same time raising money to recognize and supplement education.

To be presented Saturday, March 7, the classes will feature volunteers who will share knowledge in areas of specialized interest. Most classes will run from9 a.m. till noon in three one-hour sessions. Ballroom dancing taught by Lee Littenberg and basic vocal instruction by Carol Lewey will run the full three hours and Grace Malek’s Understanding ADD two hours.

Members of the Oneonta faculty will provide information in fields of special personal interest: Ashley Allen (Understanding Reptiles) and Stanley Moss (Understanding Birth Order). Locust Fork attorney Bret King will provide instruction in estate planning and wills.

Master gardener Jerry Jones will assist those interested in gardening techniques; Jerry Renno will provide information and tips on photography. Professionals from The Gym will offer instruction on yoga and pilates; Billy Puckett and Don Collins will share on home purchases. For those who might wish to turn to arts from the past, representatives from the local quilters guild will add from their knowledge.

Some who feel they might become more productive if they could but better organize may wish to attend Mary Nell Henderson’s session on household clutter management. Deb Jones offers a class in Arbonne botanical skin care; that class will be limited to only six participants each session.

Those who are interested or wish to learn more may phone Michelle Humphrey at 446-5915. Registration forms will appear in The Blount Countian or are available at Oneonta High School and Century 21 Town ‘N Country Realty.
