Our Town Sun City Center:
Registration a Big Success at Community Church College

By Mitch Traphagen (mitch@observernews.net)

SUN CITY CENTER - Hundreds of area residents turned out on Sept. 25 and 26 to register for classes at the Community Church College in Sun City Center. "The line stretched almost out to the street!" said Administrative Dean Sally Hahn.

Area residents have learned to get in line early for the increasingly popular classes at the college. Founded in 1976, the innovative institution has grown tremendously and today offers classes in everything from Spanish and other languages to social issues to educational trips and tours.

In all, the college will offer 47 courses and eight trips this semester.

In addition to the ever-popular Tai Chi classes, one of the popular classes this year was "How to be an Outrageous Older Woman" which, according to the college bulletin, is a semi-serious course with information on "how to survive the vicissitudes of growing old."

The class is based on the book written by Ruth Harriet Jacobs, a notable sociologist-gerontologist.

The college also offers a wide variety of financial management, personal health and other relevant and topical courses.

Classes are $15 for the six week semester and are taught by highly qualified instructors drawn primarily from the local community.

Late registration will be held today in the college office at the United Community Church, 1501 La Jolla Avenue in Sun City Center.
