As we posted before we have made some changes to our computer skills program. We changed from a 12 week class cycle, to shorter 4 week classes so participants can choose what items they need in a more flexible format. We still have a couple spots open in the classes starting this week, so please help us get these classes filled and let people know.
Monday/Wednesday – 9:30AM to 11AM – Introductory Class
Tuesday/Thursday – 4PM to 5:30PM - Introductory Class
The computer classes will be an hour and half class twice per week for four weeks and there is a $25 registration fee. When you successfully complete one class, your registration for the next class is free.
The week of April 7th we will start the next round of classes. We will have another Introductory Class, an Intermediate Class and then Classes to help with other software programs. Our classes are bilingual and taught primarily in Spanish but could take others as well if we have space.
We are also exploring adding a Saturday class that would be four hours long. That class would meet just three times to make it easier. Please give us feedback, and help is spread the word. To register please call La Casa at 233-2120.
Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.
The Board and Staff from La Casa de Amistad would like to thank everyone that made our 2014 Trivia Night a Major Success! We had nearly 150 people at the Stanley Clark school this past Saturday for our annual Trivia Night. It was a night of competition, conversations and supporting a great cause… La Casa Programs! First off we want to thank our sponsors:
Best Buy came through with a Wifi Blu-Ray player and a group of great volunteers for set up and that served as judges.
Supermercado Rosales, Republic National Distributing and United Beverage stocked our food area and bar. Can’t have a trivia night without good food and drinks!
We had many table and prize sponsors from Pathfinders Advertising, South Bend Brew Werks, I Heart SB Shirts, Schiffman Clinic, Notre Dame, United Way, etc. It was a packed house!
The event was a lot of fun and despite the snow falling outside we had a lot of fun inside! We had lots of games, raffles and of course the trivia game… and drum roll… our winner, who barely fought off the fierce team from the United Way… the winner was our board member Nancy Ball and the table of Pathfinders Advertising folks that sneaked out with the win!
Congrats to the winners! We hope to see everyone, plus a few more friends next year for the 2015 La Casa Trivia Night! Gracias!
