We have a new group using the Library.  It is a Drawing Class taught by Suzette East who also teaches drawing and painting at Adult Ed in Dover.  We had a great turn out for our first class.

They will be held every Thursday from 9 – 11 AM downstairs.  Suzette is very knowledgeable, encouraging and fun.  Whether or not you have drawn before – it does not matter.  All levels are welcome. You will learn a lot and have fun as well.  I am and I have never done any drawing in my life.

TRC Needs Your Help!

Submitted by Sethen on September 3, 2013 - 10:19pm

We need help to update our Community Calendar.  There are a lot of old events that have been in there forever, and I'm not even sure some of them are still happening.  Someone emailed me a few weeks ago to inform us the Overeaters Anonymous we had in the calendar hadn't been happening for a few years.

If you happen to see any events in the calendar that aren't taking place anymore or just need updating, please Contact Us!
