SCAE Winter Enrichment Classes Begin Soon

The Bulk Meal Prepping class will be held January 24.

In addition to academic classes, Sanford Community Adult Education offers a myriad of enrichment classes. Enrichment classes are mostly scheduled for late afternoon or during the evening; however, some are held during the day. These classes are offered by local community members who have a gift to share such as watercolor, knitting, cooking, parapsychology, pottery, etc. Paying for a class is easy, you can pay online through their website, call SCAE at 490-5145 and pay via the phone, send in a check with the registration form found on the back page of the brochure, or drop by the office at 21 Bradeen St., Suite 201, and pay in cash.

Some winter enrichment courses begin in January, while others don’t start until February or March. Offerings include:

  • Cut the Cable Cord with Margie Genereux – Simplify your life and lower your monthly bills by cutting that cable (or satellite TV) cord! Margie will help you explore a number of ways to decrease your bills and choose streaming choices that will make your family happy.
  • Bulk Meal Prep with Margarita Borgal – Chili, Meatloaf, Chicken Stew, Chicken Teriyaki, Jambalaya, Turkey Pot Pie Soup, Chicken Fajitas… oh my goodness! Don’t they sound amazing?? You’ll learn how to bulk meal prep for crockpot dinners for 4-6 months at a time, without cooking it first! Everyone will go home with one pre-made meal from the evening.
  • Felted Hearts for Valentine’s Day with Deborah McGauley – Come make Valentine heart ornaments or a short garland from the instructor’s stash of felted wool and vintage wool fabrics. Jute string for hanging as well as needles and thread will be provided! You’ll take home an ornament and a garland.
  • Ukulele with Richard Ruel – Dust off that Uke! This is a fun program structured to give you the confidence to learn and play your favorite songs. The class will cover tuning, basic strumming patterns, easy chords and lots more. All course material will be supplied, but please bring your uke, tuner, music stand and a three ring binder for the course materials.
  • A few of the other offerings include Cricut Using “Design Space,” Stretch and Flow Yoga, American Sign Language, Spanish 101, Homeschooling 101, Justice and Morality, and Jewelry Making. There are many more offered – visit the website for all the details.

Some enrichment classes are one-day sessions, while others run multiple days over the span of several weeks. Each class is described in detail in the brochure that gets mailed to all Sanford/Springvale homes, as well as on SCAE’s website at

If a course is canceled, you receive a 100% refund or credit. If you need to withdraw for any reason, and withdraw at least five business days before the start of the class, you will receive a 100% refund (less any processing fees). For classes that meet multiple times, you can receive a 50% refund or 100% credit toward a future class if you withdraw before the second class.

If you have an idea for a class or if you would like to teach a class please reach out to SCAE. When community members come out to share their talents Community Adult Education thrives. The classes are self-sustaining, meaning they pay for themselves. The instructor sets a price and receives a percentage of that price. SCAE provides the space, advertising, and organizes each class. Most classes are in person but this semester a few are being offered via Zoom. SCAE invites you to come tour the facility, ask questions, sit in on a class or meet with staff. Feel free to call 490-5145 at any time for more information.
