Eagle View Adult Center is ringing in the new year by changing its hours. Starting January 9, Eagle View will be open until 8 p.m. on Wednesdays to offer later classes.
Earlier this year surveys were sent out to residents and many people requested evening classes. Manager of Eagle View Adult Center Sue Corbett said, “This is an exciting time for Eagle View Adult Center as it begins to serve the community who work full-time jobs.”
