Each workshop will last for 90 minutes and can be attended on either Monday or Thursday evening. The workshops start at 6 p.m. and will meet in the RHHS computer lab.

When enrolling for these workshops, please indicate if you have a preference for a particular class night. If no preference is indicated, each participant will be placed in the first available opening.

The cost of each workshop is $20. Each participant will have their own computer and software to use and will leave with an electronic copy of the presented materials and any distributable software.

Fast, simple, and free web site week 1, Oct. 1 or Oct. 4.

Have you staked claim to your own personal piece of real estate in the cyber world? Well, what is stopping you?

Participants in this workshop will learn of and how to use at least two online applications that allow them to build and maintain their own personal web site. Best of all, these applications allow them to build and post a web site in a mater of minutes, for FREE.

Don’t fret yet, participants of this workshop will quickly learn how to get started and perform some more advance tasks with Publisher, Word, PowerPoint and Excel. Sounds like a lot?

Well, once you learn one, then more than likely you’ll know something about the other. Beyond that, are you tired of paying for MS Office? Well there is a free alternative called Open Office that all participants will learn how to use and receive a copy of this program.

Setting up and securing your wireless internet

week 4 Oct. 22 or Oct. 25

Wish you could get rid of the wires and sit where you want with your laptop? Better yet, are you sure your neighbors are not piggybacking on your wireless network?

Participants will be walked through a typical setup of a common wireless router they can pick up today for less than $100.

Beyond that, participants will be walked through the steps necessary to network a printer. Computer child proofing basics and suggestions will be covered also.

CPR AND FIRST AID

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is the basic lifesaving technique for treatment of sudden death or respiratory arrest.

It involves a combination of rescue breathing and chest compressions. These techniques provide basic life support by keeping oxygenated blood flowing to the brain and other vital organs until appropriate medical advanced life support can restore normal heart action.

A CPR course will provide you with the necessary information and skills needed in an emergency. Otis Willis and qualified instructors with the American Heart Association will teach adult and child CPR and First Aid class during the fall session.

Instructional areas to be taught include:

Basic First Aid (choking and breathing problems, allergic reactions, heart attack/stroke/seizures, bleeding, sprains, broken bones, burns and electrocution); Environmental Emergencies (bites and stings, temperature related emergencies, poison emergencies); and CPR and AED (adult, child, infant, and AED operation).

The class requires six hours of instructional time with a written and skills test at the end of the course. Participants will receive a First Aid Training Manual, class handouts, and a First Aid/CPR Card upon successful completion of the class requirements. Two classes will be offered this session: Saturday, Sept. 22, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.; or Monday, Oct. 1, and Tuesday, Oct. 2, from 6–9 p.m.

Exact location of classes will be available at a later date. All registrations must be received in the Community Education Office no later than one week prior to the class date. The class fee is $50.

SATURDAY ADVENTURE

A Step Back In History

During the Summer Camp program, the parents often tell us they wish they could take a day off from work and join our field trips. Here’s your opportunity.

We have planned three special Saturday activities just for adults.

RHMS teacher Larry Smith conducted some interesting and entertaining Savannah history tours for our summer campers, and he has agreed to coordinate these Savannah adult field trips for us. Participants will provide their own transportation and will meet at a pre-determined location in Savannah where Mr. Smith will have an overview and introduction to the day’s walking tour.

Registration from students or children will not be accepted on these trips! Participants should wear appropriate clothing and bring a picnic lunch that can easily be carried in a small cooler or insulated bag. Participants are welcome to bring cameras if they so desire. This is a great way to spend a beautiful fall Saturday. Because of City of Savannah regulations, class size must be limited to 30 participants. Grab a friend, pack a picnic lunch, and register today! The cost of each tour is $25.

Oglethorpe’s Opus: Savannah’s Unique City Plan – Participants will meet for an informative presentation about Savannah, Georgia’s first city. At the end of the presentation, they will use their new knowledge to "build" the city. Afterward, the group will visit Savannah’s Landmark Historic District, the nation’s largest, for a walking tour of selected squares. Participants will discover Savannah’s rich history as they view the squares, their monuments, and many historically significant sites along the way. Participants will meet on Thursday, September 27, from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. for an orientation session. The walking tour will be offered on Saturday, September 29. The group will meet at 9:00 a.m. at a designated location in Savannah.

The Civil War in Coastal Georgia – The lack of a major battle fought in or near our area has given rise to the grave misconception that Coastal Georgia has little Civil War history. During the morning session, an informative presentation will recap the major events and personalities of the war. Then participants will visit Savannah’s national Landmark Historic District for a walking tour of the many sites that are relevant to the war and the people who lived through it. The class will even learn how a Union general and a Confederate general ended up in the same family plot in Laurel Grove Cemetery! Participants will meet on Thursday, October 18, from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. for and orientation session. The walking tour will be offered on Saturday, October 20, with participants meeting at a predetermined location in Savannah at 9:00 a.m.

Beautiful Bonaventure: Savannah’s "Good Fortune!" – Participants will meet at Savannah’s Bonaventure Cemetery for an interesting and educational walking tour. The program starts with the cemetery’s history, Victorian gravestone symbolism, and the work of sculptor John Walz, who created many of the beautiful statues and memorials in Bonaventure. (Ironically, Walz has no monument or statue on his grave!) As the group travel to the bluff, they will meet such noted Savannahians as Oscar-winning songwriter Johnny Mercer, the beloved "Little Gracie", Commodore Josiah ("Blood’s thicker than water!") Tattnall, poet Conrad Aiken, and many others. As the group begins its return to the cemetery’s gate, participants become the guides as they pick monuments and statury to show the group. After the tour, the class will share their picnic lunches on the grounds, just as visitors in days past did. Participants will meet on Thursday, November 1, from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. for and orientation session. The walking tour will be offered on Saturday, November 3, with participants meeting at Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah at 9:00 a.m.

SAFE ESCAPE & CONFLICT MANAGEMENT

Non-Violent Self Defense

Safe Escape is a non-violent form of self-defense that is based in martial arts but uses positions of evasion instead of contact for protection. Safe Escape is easy to learn and enables you to anticipate your attacker’s probable reactions. By learning how to predict an attacker’s next moves, you can safely stay out of reach in position and ahead in timing. The non-violent nature of Safe Escape offers effective personal protection without giving reason for future retaliation. The class will also focus on topics such as efficient and peaceful problem solving and communication skills, understanding gender differences in perception and communication of problems and conflicts, and learning how to identify physical symptoms of conflict and distress in yourself and others. The class is taught by Leah Kidwell who has over ten years of experience in the field of conflict management. She obtained her BA in Conflict Studies from DePauw University and is finishing her MA in Secondary Education. She is experienced in curriculum and program design and facilitation pertaining to peaceful problem solving, Safe Escape, diversity, successful communication, money management and many other topics. This class is available for women, ages 18 and older. The class will meet on Tuesday, October 2, from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. in the RHES auditorium. The class fee is $25.
