New West Center brochure offers classes/programs for winter, spring 05

       A Black History Music Festival, a St. Patrick's Day Party and a Great Sand Dunes field trip are among the events planned by the West Intergenerational Center during the first part of 2005.
       Area residents are also invited to come to a public meeting (called the Summer Planning Meeting), at which citizen input is welcomed on the programs being offered by the center.
       Information about such activities and various programs/classes from early childhood up to adult is provided in the West Center's Winter and Spring 2005 brochure.
       Brochures will be mailed out this week to past program participants, or they can be picked up for free at the West Center, 25 N. 20th St. (next to West Middle School).
       In all, the brochure lists 62 possible things to do.
       The Music Festival will be from noon to 2 p.m. Feb. 5 at West; the party 10:30 to 11:15 a.m. March 17 at West; and the field trip from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. May 13.
       The Summer Planning Meeting is scheduled at 10 a.m. March 4.
       The brochure separates categories into special events; early childhood, elementary, teen and adult/senior programs; arts and crafts; general interest; language; wellness and health; and excursions for adults 55+.
       There is also an On-going Partnership Program, through a grant to West and the CSU Extension Office, which will enable youth in grades 4-9 to access a variety of after-school programs at no cost.
