Excitement is in the air at Master the Possibilities. Not because we are looking forward to that famous turkey or holiday dinner on Thanksgiving Day, but because this month our team will be hosting the Winter 2023 Kick-Off event at the Circle Square Cultural Center.

Everyone is welcome to join our team on Wednesday, November 16 from 1 to 3 p.m. for this very popular event. We will have more than 50 faculty members attending in an Expo-style layout to meet potential students and share information about their upcoming courses and events. Many instructors will have classroom projects on display and can share with prospects materials or skillsets needed for participation.

Those who attend the event will have the chance to receive the Winter 2023 catalog early, pre-register for classes, and may even win a free class. Individuals who bring a smart phone or tablet with them may even self-register for classes while visiting various tables and speaking with instructors.

Getting excited yet? If not, I will give a small clue as to what participants may expect in our curriculum next term- our learning theme is Learning In Our Own Back Yard! I invite you to stop by this event that is free and open to the public and experience for yourself what all the excitement is all about.

Although we are promoting classes for next term already, Master the Possibilities has a plethora of learning opportunities this month participants may choose to take advantage of while waiting for the new catalog to be released.

Our Visiting Speakers this month are William and Sue Wills, who will be portraying Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt from 1:30 to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, November 2 in Live Oak Hall. In this presentation, the Wills will focus on the more private side of the lives of President and First Lady Roosevelt, and how their triumphs and tragedies helped shape their public lives. Cost to attend this special event is $11 for members and $16 for non-members.

Astronomer and author of 100 Things to See in the Night Sky, Dean Regas will be hosting a class remote from Cincinnati, Ohio on Winter Skies to a classroom of participants in Live Oak Hall. In this presentation, Regas will share with participants tips and tricks on identifying stars, constellations, planets, and more about the winter night sky. This presentation is great for beginners or those who have an interest in the night sky. Cost for this event is $8 for members and $13 for non-members.
