LAURENS — Recently a questionnaire was sent to all parents of Laurens Central School pupils. The questionnaire concerned adult education classes for the year.

There should be a minimum of eight adults per class. There were several subjects for which four or five indicated interest: typing, driver training, ceramics, leathercraft, and ladies physical fitness. Subjects for which only one or two indicated interest were art, literature, bookkeeping, rapid writing, early American design, woodworking and business machines.

If sufficient numbers indicate interest, most classes will be held Tuesday and Wednesday evenings with the exception of driver training, which will be held Saturday mornings.
