Waxahachie Lighthouse For Learning offers continued education

Waxahachie Lighthouse For Learning is designed for adults (18 years and older) to continue education and have a little fun. Are you interested in learning swing dance or calligraphy? Knitting or guitar? There are assorted classes to choose from and they begin September 22.
