They realized the increasing need to know conversational Spanish and expressed an interest in a Spanish class.”The Spanish class has about 25 members but new members are always welcome.“The Spanish class is a service that we are providing for our community,” Motes said. “We have waived the 50 and over age requirement so that anybody who wants to learn Spanish can attend.”The Spanish class meets at 6:30 p.m. Tuesdays at the Colley Senior Complex.

Men just don’t think there is much for them to do here.” By Jaine Treadwellcenter_img Sponsored Content Next UpIn an effort to change that way of thinking, Motes said she started looking for activities that would be of special interest to men.“My first thought was woodcarving but that is such a specialty that not many people wanted to try it,” she said. “Then I met Jason Bell, who is the National Blitz Chess Champion. He agreed to teach a chess class and we already have six people enrolled. He is a great teacher and everyone is having a good time while learning the strategies of the game.”The chess class meets at 5:15 on Monday nights at the Colley Senior Complex and Motes said it’s not too late to join.
