Welcome to the Community Education program for Fall 2012. As you browse through the Fall Community Educa-
tion schedule, you will find many choices to help develop new skills, inspire your creativity, share ideas, explore new
places and bring new meaning to your life.

Community Education
The Film Discussion Series is the best movie deal around! For $75 you can select 12 movies plus join a discussion
prior to the films. We are offering two new Chinese Mandarin courses, and French is back by popular demand. In
the History and Culture category, we have several new classes that cover both current and historic topics. Looking
for some entertaining ideas for the holidays? We have several wine and beer appreciation courses that will introduce
you to some new tastes.
Check out our popular computer and digital photography classes, but enroll early, because they fill up quickly. In
addition we have added several new Life Skills classes and are pleased to partner with Capstone Health Plan and Tri
City Partnership to offer two Life Skills for Special Needs classes.

Fall EDventures
See our fall trips beginning on page 14. We have several new trips this fall to explore Yavapai County history and
prehistory. Also new are two hiking trips and a 3-day raft trip to the Colorado River over Memorial Day weekend.
Take a haunted walk in downtown Prescott, tour the Viticulture program with a wine tour of the Verde Valley and
explore an 800-year old pueblo at Wupatki.
The EDventures guides are fun, well-traveled and knowledgeable, and you’ll learn so much about the state as you
travel off the beaten paths with them.
While we travel to Tahiti in November 2012, we are already planning the 2013 international trip. We will travel
to Maasailand in Kenya, Africa August 8-18, 2013. The trip has an educational focus, and we will participate in a
service project related to children’s education. Join us for an informational session on Saturday, October 20, to find
out more!

We hope you will join us on campus to celebrate the colors of autumn!
Based on your response this spring, we will continue to mail our schedule to homes throughout the community.
At the same time we are working on a plan to improve our online registration process and ways to tell you on the
website or through email about Community Education course offerings.
