Feeling lonely and blue?


MERIDIAN —     • Open House Art Show, June 17-2 – Meridian Activity Center classes will put their art work on display in the big room. Some will be for sale. Monday will be an “open house” for the artists, teachers and classmates to meet one another and see what each class is doing. This is open to the public. We hope you will come and take a look.

Sewing classes

    This summer Mary Gipson will teach machine quilting on Monday afternoons and evenings.

    On Tuesdays, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., we are offering a basic sewing class with Gracie Payne. You can come and learn on our machines or bring your own.     

    Then, once again, we are offering a cake decorating class on Tuesday, from 10:30 a.m.-noon. We also have an instructor who wants to teach a T-shirt quilt class. Call to let me know you are interested, (601) 485-1812.


    Next: Something everyone has been asking for – an iPad class. We’ll be making a list of interested students to keep this class size down to a minimum; we’ll try to offer several classes.

    Tom Milhorn is still teaching computer classes Monday nights, Thursday mornings – and a new day, Wednesday afternoons at 1 p.m. We are offering instruction in Windows 7 and Windows 8. (Windows 8 is the latest program for pcs if your computer was bought between October 2012 and now.)

Watercolor Workshop

    The Painter’s Palette Club has invited Mark Polomchak, a watercolor artist from Indiana, to teach two classes at the activity center next fall on a Friday and a Saturday. Visit his website at to see his style and determine if you want to take the class. His style is suitable for beginners as well as advanced students.

    The fee is $50 per class. Call Pat Dean at (601) 774-8354 or the activity center at (601) 485-1812 and speak with Barbara for more information.
