It is time to make requests for the Community Education fall brochure. Events and activities are being planned through December of this calendar year. A number of outings have already been booked.
First on the schedule is the Minnesota State Fair on Monday, Aug. 26, which is Kids and Senior Citizen Day with discounted tickets available. The Clay County Fair trip will be on Tuesday, Sept. 12, as this is the only Senior Citizen Day this year.
Three theatre choices are also on the schedule. On Thursday, Sept. 5, the Plymouth Playhouse will be visited to see “Church Basement Ladies in “The Last (Potluck) Supper.” A new venue near the Mall of America will be visited on Wednesday, Sept. 25 for “Last Train to Nibroc” which is a comedy. A reservation has been made for Wednesday, Oct. 30, to see “Fiddler on the Roof” at the Chanhassen Dinner Theatre.
The Old Log Theatre is under new management and will be offering shows later this fall. Watch for additional events in our fall brochure available by the end of August.

The Community Education office is located in Room 109 of the Sleepy Eye High School. Summer office hours are generally 9 a.m. to noon Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. Since staff is part-time, they may not always be in the building. You can call and leave a message on voice mail, 507-794-7873, and we will get back to you with more information. Another option is to e-mail staff with questions and to sign-up. Addresses are on the school website.
