Fun with four strings

Ukulele classes throughout Delta start in January.

One-hour classes will be held at:

• The Kennedy Seniors’ Recreation Centre, 11670 88 Ave. Fridays from 1-2 p.m., from Jan. 6 to Feb. 24. These beginner lessons are for seniors 55+. The cost for eight lessons is $80 ($70 for members);
