Upcoming ALL programs set

Association of Lifelong Learners programs are set for this week.

ALL is continuing its online programming, plus they have started some in-person programs at the Briggs Center at Alpena Community College, and elsewhere. Due to very limited seating capacity, you must call the ALL office at 989-358-7207 to get a confirmed reservation for in-person programs. Most in-person programs will also be livestreamed.

These programs are open to the public. Just send an email to ALL@Alpenacc.edu to receive connection information.

Today at 2 p.m. is “Line Dancing” online only via Zoom. Debbie Kerr has been teaching line dancing classes for six years — four years for the ALL group. This weekly program will end on Sept. 28 and resume next spring.

Tuesday at 10:30 a.m., join longtime Alpena News columnist Douglas Pugh for “Writing a Newspaper Column — The Elements of Style.” This program will be at Briggs Center and livestreamed on Zoom. Finding suitable topics, acquiring the ability to describe them in a newspaper column format, and maintaining the level of commitment necessary to a weekly deadline is a challenge. Where do you find guidance? How do you have fun doing it? Pugh was Alpena born and raised, received his education from ACC, Detroit, MSU, and Wayne State University Law School. He practiced law; was as Alpena Probate and Family Court Judge for 24 years. He is married, has two sons and three grandchildren.

Wednesday, at 6:30 p.m., join Alpena City Clerk Anna Soik, and Doris Feys, co-president of the League of Women Voters of Northeast Michigan, for “Voting Questions Answered.” This is an online only program via Zoom and Facebook Live. If you have questions about voting, please send them to Doris Feys at lwvnmed@gmail.com.

Thursday at 11:30 a.m. is the “Fall Happening” for members at Dinosaur Gardens in Ossineke.
