The students pre-registered for their choice of classes which included, Gifts for Mom, Games and Magic with Science, Recreation, Illustory, Basket Making, Horseshoes and Bird Houses.

Instructors for the day were, Kim Batten, Mike Batten, Patty Haught, Terry Hickman, Kristie Ritchie, Angie Sims, and Kelli Whytsell.
