"Every Life has a Story," a six week Umpqua Community College class demonstrating various ways of telling personal stories, will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. every Tuesday from Jan. 29 to March 6. The class will be held at the Wayne Crooch Hall on the UCC campus.

“Every person is unique and each one of us is making a difference in our world. I want to excite students about recording their stories so that their imprint will not be lost,” said Ada Duncan, the class instructor.

Hands-on exercises will stem from studying vignettes, portraits, essays and autobiographies.

To register, call 541-440-4668. Senior Gold Card discount is available.

Information: 541-673-1073 or adagduncan@gmail.com
