Brainberry U

Brainberry U (BU) was created to enrich the lives of our residents providing classes of all types. Whatever classes various groups want are provided under the auspices of BU. The entire program is self-funded and is run by Joyce Poses and her board. If you are interested in starting a class, contact Joyce. She is very creative.

You can get a lot of things back, but you can't get back time. Time is priceless. Don't waste it. Make it count. Open every door. At least then you have a choice. Closed doors lead nowhere. Open one of ours.
