“It is not knowledge, but the act of learning, not possession but the act of getting there, which grants the greatest enjoyment.” – Carl Friedrich Gauss
Fall brings the change in leaves, switch from daylight savings time, and change of classes available at New Danville. Some are new and some are golden oldies.
At the core of all the classes is the desire to bring activities and experiences that encourage growth, learning, socialization, independence, and, of course, FUN.
Some of the popular “old classics” that are returning to the schedule after a bit of a hiatus include culinary arts and creative drama. New additions that provide good times, as well as learning, include, Around the World in 30 Days, Let’s Meditate and Dance. Nicole Martinez, the program coordinator, said, “The class Hoop There It Is! caught the attention of the Wranglers. They are very excited about the class. It seems like everyone wants to be part of it.”
According to Bryan Gill, program manager, “It is good, and important, to mix things up a bit, but not too often and not too much. Our Wranglers enjoy variety and are comfortable with the routine. We just don’t want to become too routine. We strive for that perfect balance. By working with the offerings, Wranglers get to choose what interests them the most while being involved in the ongoing act of learning.”
