The short course will be held at the First United Methodist Church Nurture Center located at 212 Washington Avenue and at Wilson Livestock Market in Newport. It will be offered from 9 am until 5 pm both days, and lunch will be provided each day. Class participation fee is $75 and will cover lunch and all class materials.
