New Happenings around Cambridge, NY New Happenings around Cambridge, NY

Looking for a way to get the jump on Christmas ideas, I suggest you visit the new boutique at the Rice Mansion Inn. Christine Hoffer and Marianne Pender have put together a selection of items to fit every budget. There are T-shirts with Rice Seed graphics, works by local artists, antiques, crafts, and, best of all, they have a full line of wine and beer making supplies.

Don't know how to make wine or beer? Take the wine making class offered by:

Class begins on Thursday, September 11, 2008 at 6:30 pm and costs $45, which includes all supplies. Classes will meet every other Thursday for 6 weeks. At the end of the term, you will have made 3 bottles of white and 3 bottles of red wine, suitable for gift giving this Christmas. That's a lot of bang for the buck! I signed up and can't wait to see what we make.

I also recommend you take a look at the fall class schedule for Hubbard Hall. Gina Mammone Deibel has put together an amazing array of programs. It's not just dance anymore! There are art classes, yoga, fencing, Bollywood dance, Tai Ji, singing and voice lessons. There's a class for any age group and time schedule. If you are a member (only $20 for a single membership) you receive a discount on classes and performances at the Hall.

If you're into dog classes, I suggest you check out the High Goal Farm in Greenwich,NY.
