Horizons of Putnam County is beginning its 14th year of "community education taught by the community" with a rich and varied list of fall courses.
Founded as a non-profit in 1996 to offer "an adventure in lifelong education," Horizons provides a variety of courses offered in a non-traditional format. Instructors come from all areas of the county and bring unique knowledge, perspective, and enthusiasm to the classroom.
Courses are offered in the fall and spring and vary from one-day choices to the more typical one-session-per-week format.
Locations include the Greencastle Community Center, the Putnam County Public Library, and the Greencastle Galleria.
There are 12 offerings this fall:
-- "The Healing Power of the Drum" led by Julianne Miranda.
-- "Introduction to Nature Photography" taught by Marilyn Culler.
