Who are We?


The Community Classroom is a committee of The Gathering Place, a 501(c)(3) organization. It began in 2010 in church basements and classrooms and as you can see, we have grown.

We are committed to continuing educational opportunities for adult learners. We have volunteer committees. The hours spent in inviting instructors, scheduling classes, creating and distributing  our brochures and maintaining our website have been labors of love and a reflection of our commitment to continuing education.

Our committee members are: Dori Waters, Emily Rancier, Anne Armezzani, Ann  Tracey Khalife, Trudy Montella, Sue Wittman, Lindsey Hardy, and Paula Baillie.

We have a programming committee that assists the Community Classroom in designing classes and events. Connie McDonnell, Nancy Parlo, Debbie McBride, Trudy Montella,  Dori Waters, Debbie McBride, Emily Rancier, Lexi McFarland, Anne Armezzani and Paula Baillie serve on this committees. 

As Dori Waters says,

“It takes a village…”

The Abington Area Community Classroom remains committed to bringing learning and entertainment opportunities to our greater “village.”
