KIDZ ZONE, Creative Arts for kids ages 5-12, meets every Thursday at The Salvation Army, 437 Inman St. A meal is provided at 6 p.m., and the activities begin at 6:45 p.m. For more information, call Gina Ballinger at 308-3467.

an AARP Driver Safety Class will be given on June 26 and 27 by McMinn Senior Center for adults over 55 years. The class runs from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each day. This classroom program helps ensure older drivers remain safe behind the wheel. Refreshing the rules of the road in an informal setting among your peers keeps skills sharp. The instructor is professionally qualified to present the program which could lead to a discount from your insurance company. Class fee for the eight-hour course is $12 for AARP members and $14 for non-members. To pre-register, call McMinn Senior Center at 423-745-6830.

Summer is almost here and for many kids that means it’s time for camp. The Salvation Army is preparing for its annual summer camp which benefits children from disadvantaged circumstances. Children ages 7-12 are eligible to go to The Salvation Army’s Division Camp located on beautiful Dale Hollow Lake. The fun-filled week will offer crafts, fishing, swimming, sports, songfests and campfires with a focus on learning about God’s love. Certified camp instructors supervise all swimming and waterfront activities and there is a nurse on duty at all times. For more information, call Gina Ballinger at 308-3467.
