Over 21! Classes

As part of our goal to create community, Pathfinder Village regularly offers semesters of community education classes for adults, OVER 21! through which friends and neighbors may stay fit or explore new hobbies.  

View the latest OVER 21 Registration Brochure!

Classes are announced during the spring and fall, with different courses each semester to appeal to people of different interests. Classes may meet once or twice a session, or may be offered weekly for up to eight weeks. Most courses have a one-time registration fee or a per session/materials fee. To learn more about upcoming options, please contact Paula Schaeffer, Director of Enrichment and Music Programs, at (607) 965-8377, ext. 126. 

“We’ve had great success and fun through our earlier OVER 21! classes and other continuing education classes we’ve offered through the years," said Mrs. Schaeffer. "We think that many of our area neighbors would enjoy learning new skills or meeting those who share similar interests.”
