There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.

It's the first Friday of the month at noon--what's that noise?
An emergency siren is tested the first Friday of each month, March through November. The test will consist of a one to three minute steady tone. This siren would be used in the event of an actual emergency such as a tornado.
I Have Dietary Restrictions
In the spirit of inclusion, CLAS posts menus a couple days in advance for all its major events (see the CLAS website page devoted to that event). We do our best to note when a dish is vegan, gluten free, etc. and if a dish includes pork products, shellfish, dairy, etc. We strive for a variety that will enable you to enjoy our events.
