Kirtland announces new offerings in Grayling

GRAYLING – Kirtland Community College, in cooperation with the AuSable Artisan Village (AAV) Committee, has announced two new offerings which will begin in March.

The first will be a free “eCommerce Seminar” from 7-8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 15, at the Devereaux Memorial Library at 201 Plum St. in Grayling. There is no registration for this event and the public is welcome to attend.

“This free 90-minute seminar features web developers, area business consultants, financial professionals and the computer science faculty of Kirtland Community College,” said Clay Horton, AAV liaison and computer instructor at Kirtland. “Real-life presentations will also feature opportunities for questions and answers about the past, present and future of eCommerce.

“Business people from the immediate area and artisans who are eager to lift their craft to the next level are encouraged to attend,” he added. “Even if you are just curious about eCommerce, this is the event for you.”

Just a day later, a new six-week course, “Beginning Knitting” will get underway at the AuSable River Nature Center (the former public library) at 100 S. James St. Cost for the non-credit offering is $75, with needles and wool being included.

“Prior knitting experience isn’t required,” Horton said. “Some experience will help and this class can be a great transition back into knitting.”

Beginning Knitting is slated for 6-9 p.m. each Wednesday from March 16 to April 20. Pre-registration is required, as seating is limited to 16 persons.

Annually, about 3,200 students attend a variety of certificate and two-year degree programs at Kirtland’s four locations – the main campus near Roscommon and the Michigan Technical Education Center (M-TEC) in Gaylord, as well as sites in Grayling and West Branch – with the college’s service area including all or parts of Crawford, Oscoda, Ogemaw, Roscommon, Otsego, Kalkaska, Missaukee, Gladwin and Alcona counties, and the surrounding areas.
