Buffalo, WYO — The Cowboy Carousel Center in Buffalo’s Historic District will be offering summer classes in May and June of 2014 this year. The theme for the summer is fun learning, says Kimberly Boone, Director of the Community Based Learning Program at the CCC. There is something for everyone, Boone says, and she is very happy with the great variety of classes offered. All the classes at the CCC are taught by local folks for local folks, Boone stressed. That is the basis for community based learning. There are no requirements, no heavy costs, no applications or application fees. Just good learning by local experts from the community offering their knowledge, experience and expertise for their fellow local community members. Boone suggests everyone give it a try as a great way to start the summer.
Also she is already planning fall classes, so if you are interested in teaching give her a call. This is a great way for the newly retired to stay involved in the community or for a small business to expand their customer base (folks may be intimidated going into, say, a wine store when they don’t know about wines. Teach a course on wine tasting and you may develop a friend and customer for life – and developed a deeper connection with the community. It’s a great way for small businesses to get involved in the community and educate folks to what they do.
Many of the summer
classes focus on outdoor learning, including fly fishing and plein air painting in the Bighorn Mountains. The classes have limited enrollment so Boone suggests folks sign up early. Call her at (307) 217-4084 or email her at the center: firstname.lastname@example.org.
