We are scrambling like mad to finish everything up at the new Humanity House building. The gardening had been postponed due to the weird attitude of Mother Nature, but with the sunshine and a couple of days under our belt in the garden, things are coming along in that respect also.
Because we can never have too much going on, classes are underway at the new building. This past week we began our beginners guitar classes. Our teacher is an excellent guitarist and the students are enthusiastic and range in age from 6 to 40. Its wonderful to listen to someone make their first perfect chord and see the spark of possibility in their eyes.
On May 10, we will resume our American Sign Language classes. This year, Chelsea Shrum will teach children on Thursdays 6:30-7:15 and adults 7:30-8:30. Chelsea is also an enthusiastic teacher. This class is a great one. Learning to communicate with everyone is important. Children are especially good at picking up sign language quickly. If you have children who are not all booked up in other activities this is a great class for them. Parents can either come with the kids or drop them off and then hit the Allen County Farmers Market with all of their terrific produce and homemade goods.
