Summertime is prime time to learn something new

Angel Fitzpatrick | Jun 7, 2018

Adult and Continuing Education (ACE), the non-credit division of North Central Texas College, is proud to announce the release of its summer Prime Timers schedule.  Free (unless otherwise noted) to Cooke County residents who are 62 and up, the summer Prime Timers schedule of classes is chock full of fun, interactive and educational courses.

Eligible Cooke County residents can choose from courses in nine categories, including community, health and wellness, arts and crafts, culinary and more. One of the new courses offered this summer is Great Movie Palaces in Gainesville, Texas, which takes students on a journey through local history to explore Cooke County’s great movie theaters.

The ACE summer Prime Timers brochure comprises not just information about classes, but also useful information, such as how to schedule a ride with TAPS Public Transit, and a Butterfield Stage Theater special event, exclusively for ACE Prime Timers who are 2018-19 Butterfield season ticketholders.

As part of its mission to be responsive to the needs of the community, ACE welcomes ideas for future Prime Timers’ classes and encourages Cooke County Prime Timers to get involved and do more than just attend a class – teach a class.
