While we are excited to see our antique students again, we want the health and safety of students and staff to be a priority. Therefore, Antique Appreciation class will be conducted in accordance with the guidelines from the CDC:

  • Classes will be held in the dining room and will provide 6 foot distancing.
  • Class attendees will be required to wear a mask and maintain social distancing of 6 feet.
  • No food or drink will be allowed.
  • Attendees are welcome to bring a show and tell item as usual; however, CDC guidelines require that objects may not be shared.  You may not pass your item to others in the class or to Pat.  

In order to maintain 6 feet distance between attendees, we are capping attendance for each session to 5 people. To reserve your spot for each week’s sessions, attendees will need to call and reserve their spot and pre-pay the registration fee.
