Downtown offers classes, opportunities to learn

It’s the New Year, and with that comes New Year’s Resolutions, which often include learning a new skill or finishing that remodel that was started a while back.

While resolutions often come and go before the first month of the year is over, downtown Claremore offers the opportunity to get involved and cross some of those resolutions off your list.

Several businesses offer classes to help refurbish an old piece of furniture, improve your art skills or teach young ones how to bake.
