A Note from the Director

Welcome Back!

While there is still a great amount of uncertainty in how the year will proceed, there is also great hope, and
more opportunities than ever before. The pandemic has brought great challenges to our lives and also
forced us to look at how we do things. Our hope is to offer the best of both worlds to you. Some of our fitness
classes will remain on Zoom, as participation has increased tremendously on this platform, and many of
our classes will resume in person (as conditions dictate).

Many of you have had time to reflect on your career, education and goals during this time. We have noticed
an increase in those who are changing careers, seeking training, and exploring new options. Our advisors,
in Adult Education, are here to help you navigate the changes and can help you achieve your goals. Reach
out by phone (207-657-9612) or email ( if you are interested in getting started.

We look forward to working with and serving the communities of Gray and New Gloucester. As always, if you
have a craft or special talent that you would like to share with the community, please feel free to reach out.

We look forward to seeing you this year!
