Open House

NCE Open House 2014

To kick off each fiscal year - in August - we host an Open House. This year it is our goal to reach more of our constituents and members of the community by hosting a kick off event at each of our locations. We will host an Open House event at The Cohn School, Wright Middle School, and at the Antioch Farmer's Market.

Each event will have instructors there to talk with the community about their skills and classes and show their projects. In addition, we will have face painting, balloons, performances from local schools, radio djs, and more for entertainment!
