LEWISTON — Students will have a chance to test their abilities again with the return of a full week of classes at Lewiston Adult Education starting Tuesday, Feb. 23, that will include the Standup Comedy Workshop and an exercise class, Stretch & Strengthen.

The winter-spring 2021 brochure that features Lewiston classes and those from Auburn Adult & Community Education has gone out to general delivery customers in Lewiston and Auburn. In addition to mailing in sign-up forms, people can also register on the Lewiston Adult Education website,

Many classes for the semester will be online, such as Apples & Other Fruit Trees, Landlord-Tenant Relations and Plan a Magical Disney Vacation. Others, including Stretch & Strengthen and Standup Comedy Workshop, will be in-person, requiring students to wear masks and to socially distance as precautions against the spread of COVID-19.

Because of the construction of the addition to Lewiston High School, the in-person classes will be held at the Adult Learning Center at Longley School, 145 Birch St.

The release of the winter-spring brochure was delayed until February rather than the usual time of late January.

“Our hope is that with a vaccine and the wind-down of the typical cold and flu season we can provide a safe in-person atmosphere for our learners,” Lewiston Adult Education Director Bill Grant said in a letter in the brochure.

Anyone with questions about the new semester can contact Mike Reagan from Lewiston Adult Education at [email protected] or 207-795-4141.
