It’s Spring and our classes have begun. All you need do is browse our classes and then register. We have so many new classes, including three unified classes. These classes are dedicated to promoting social inclusion; our unified classes join people with and without intellectual disabilities. Our mission is to build community, an inclusive community, a community of learners.
If you have not noticed, we now are the Abington Area Community Classroom brought to you by The Gathering Place. The Gathering Place, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, is our new parent organization and will soon become our home so that we can bring you classes and events throughout the week and the year. We are still in the process of raising money to renovate the old firehouse on State St. and are halfway to our goal. You can learn about our new home at The Gathering Place and can help by donating by clicking here .
Happening This Weekend, March 28
A free performance of Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People’s Ears will be presented at the Clarks Summit Borough building on Saturday, March 28 at 1:00 p.m. This interactive West African folktale will be presented by the Dietrich Children’s Theatre in conjunction with The Gathering Place for Community, Arts and Education, a new nonprofit currently fundraising to turn the former Clarks Summit firehouse into an arts and education center. Before renovations begin, The Gathering Place will host Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People’s Ears, the first of four free plays based on multicultural folk tales to be presented by the Dietrich Children’s Theatre at The Gathering Place this spring.
