Mental Health Ministries presents Humor and Laughter as a Path of Healing with Diane Ealy.


Dr. C Diane Ealy has known the joy of making people laugh since she was 4 years old. She is an author (her books can be found on Amazon), energy healer, creativity and humor specialist. She will demonstrate her brand of humor and discuss how we can use laughter to promote healing within ourselves and within the community. You will learn how to fulfill your MDRL.



Anita Fonte offers a class on Civics! How much do we know?


It's an important year for political issues on all levels. This session is about the broader civics knowledge that all high school graduates are required to pass. Using actual randomly selected questions that each participant pulls from a box and reads to the group.


Can you answer them all?


It will be a fun session and may encourage us all dig deeper into our knowledge and understanding of our government




There is no Community Education March 25th, so that all can attend the Desert Southwest United Methodist Foundation seminar on Building Our Legacy. Read about it in Special Events.
