of music. You need to be a member of the senior center and register with Sinclair College to

Senior center members may join a class any time during the year with the understanding that
the full amount of $25 will be billed by Sinclair College, no matter how many weeks remain in
that semester. If you factor in the total numbers of classes per semester, it comes out to less
than $1 per class.

*The Board approved revising the policy on the number of tickets a member may obtain. For
many years, there was a two-ticket limit. Six years ago, it was increased to four tickets but

October events.

events and tear down afterwards. Also discussed and agreed upon was starting the cleanup
process after the entertainment/program ends.
