Become part of a Rockford tradition at the Stockholm Inn, or partake in the class about fine wines from France and America, which will be at Basil Café.

For a healthier you, there are classes about walking, chair exercise and John Barnes’ Myofascial Release. The Golden Eagles Fitness Program meets May 22 to Aug. 18. Great Discussions, Nimble Fingers and Stitchery are also available to members of the Center for Learning in Retirement.
