PROFIT’S CORNER -- M.E. Callaghan Community School wrapped up its fall session of classes Monday night with a potluck meal as well as entertainment and displays by class participants.

While most community schools across the province offer classes during the winter months, Ida Gaudet, chairwoman for M.E. Callaghan Community School said fall classes work well there. She agrees it is difficult for farmers and fishermen to attend classes during the fall but takes comfort that they will be able to take advantage of winter classes elsewhere in the region.

Held on Monday nights, starting September 30, the community school offered first and second year guitar and fiddle, jamming, digital camera, art, rug hooking, fly tying, public speaking and other courses. Besides providing participants with an opportunity to learn new skills, Community School is popular as a social outing.

Among the benefits of fall courses, Gaudet suggested, is participants attend from all over and can still take advantage of Community Schools elsewhere during the winter.

Most Community Schools are in session starting in early January. Schedules and courses are available at
