After developing connections within the community through gathering at RCH, our neighbors initiated this English class in order to achieve greater proficiency in the English language. This is a popular class for both men and women. Conversations are always lively and have served as the basis for new friendships.
Food, Fun & Friendship
Gathering Wednesday mornings, this weekly drop-in class began as an opportunity for neighbors to build connections. As relationships and confidence strengthened, the focus of this group turned, naturally, to food. Sharing recipes, culture and nutrition advice, local participants and volunteers all learn something new each week.
Sewing classes have proved to be extremely popular. Both talented volunteers and participants have helped neighbors pursue a wide variety of projects. Using sewing machines and supplies generously donated by many, the class is becoming proficient at making skirts, dresses, blouses and other articles of clothing as well as undertaking various home improvement projects. This group also likes to use their skills to give back by knitting hats, scarves, making aprons and purses for others.
With every season and holiday, RCH offers special adult activities, such as wreath making and container planting. New ideas are embraced with enthusiasm.
