with Susan Farnsworth
Review the basics of making a simple will. A will can protect your assets and help minimize the chances of a contest over your estate. If you die without one, your estate may not be distributed as you would choose. Use a will to: provide for your family, specify to whom you would like to receive your property, state your funeral and burial instructions, create a trust for minor children, disinherit a person(s), or name a guardian for minor children. Join local attorney Susan Farnsworth for this one-evening class as she explains the process of creating a will and discusses how to determine whether a simple will is sufficient or if a more complex document is in order to protect your assets.

with John Palange
Do you sometimes feel like your dog is the master? A well-trained pet will make life easier and more enjoyable for everyone. In this six-week basic obedience class we will work on teaching your dog to walk without pulling on a leash, heel, sit, down, stay, and come, in a friendly and relaxed way. Dogs should be six months old or older. Proof of rabies vaccination must be submitted to Adult Ed office prior to first class. You will need a six-foot leash and an appropriate training collar. John Palange has trained dogs professionally at K-9 Training Center for over 42 years, with other trainers often referring their most “challenging” dogs to him.

Which Camera Should I Buy?
with Gary Swinton

The discussion will range from point and shoot cameras to high-end digital single lens reflex cameras, with the instructor bringing a wide variety of examples to view. Interchangeable lens options (with examples provided by instructor) and purchase resources, both online and locally, will be discussed.
Intermediate Dog Obedience
with John Palange
Intermediate dog obedience classes focus on strengthening basic obedience skills and introducing more complex exercises. Refining of previously learned commands, such as increasing the duration of the“stay” or moving out of sight during a “down” exercise are also included. Trick training is another facet of intermediate obedience, and tricks, such as rolling over or choosing the right toy from a pile, are easier to teach once your dog has a handle on basic obedience skills. Proof of rabies vaccination must be submitted to Adult Ed office prior to first class. You will need a six-foot leash and an appropriate training collar.
