MALTA – Kishwaukee College Community Education is offering personal enrichment courses and events this month.

Paranormal Investigation will be offered in two parts – 6 to 8 p.m. March 6 and 6 to 9 p.m. March 15.

In the first session, participants will learn the theory of paranormal investigation, how to set up for an investigation, how to analyze evidence, and, ultimately, how to protect against paranormal activity.

In the second session, participants will participate in an actual paranormal investigation at Malta Town Hall. Investigation techniques will include Ghost Box sessions, EVP sessions, photo saturating and more.

Participants must be 18 years of age or older to register. The cost is $49.

American Sign Language – Basics will be offered from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursdays, March 21 through May 2, at Kishwaukee College.

This class will teach how to begin to communicate with the deaf community. Participants also will learn about deaf culture. The instructor, Dana Cipra, has been signing since the age of 7. She has a brother and many close friends who are deaf and has worked as a sign language interpreter since 1995.

This class is open to all ages. Participants younger than age 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Cost is $125.

Those in need of a reasonable accommodation to fully participate in this class, should call Kristin Taylor, accommodations specialist, at 815-825-9467 as soon as registration is completed.

The Haunts of Malta at Town Hall will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. March 30. Attendees will gather at the historic Malta Town Hall to hear the legends of Malta’s haunted past and present. Riveting storytelling, music and dancing will immerse participants in the history of a town that overcame a devastating fire and horrific train wrecks.

In collaboration with Dance Dimensions Academy and the Kishwaukee College music program, this event will include songs performed and interpreted by local musicians and dancers, that will merge the past with the present. A reception with a cash bar and appetizers will follow the performance. The cost is $35.
