Butler-Marion offers free classes April 2

The Marion campus of Butler Community College will participate in Butler?s third annual Free Class Day Saturday, April 2.

More than 150 free one- and two-hour classes will be available to participants.

Topics range from cutting your grocery bill in half with coupons, to making your own Web site, to online cyber safety tips and making your own greeting cards.

The public also can learn about digital photography, social media, ghost hunting, Power?Point, starting a business, scuba and more. Classes for kids include beading, animal art, sticker cards, building with Legos and Playdough creations.

Butler officials say last year?s event drew more than 1,300 enrollments to its various campus locations.

?Free Day has not only been a fun and exciting event, but it?s a stellar way for us to give back to the communities that support Butler every day,? said Cindy Miles, director of campus and community relations at Butler.

This year?s guest instructors include Butler President Jackie Vietti, award-winning illustrator Michael Klein, and media specialists such as Todd Ramsey and Jared Brickman.

Marion classes kick off at 8:30 a.m. Complete class listings and registration information can be found at: http://thebutlerpost.posterous.com/butler-brings-fun-free-classes-to-the-communi.
