CUBA, NY --  Persons who enjoy doing crafts, chatting and drinking wine are invited to attend the Winter Wine and Design class at the Palmer Opera House & Events Center, 12 W. Main St., on Jan. 30 at 6:30 p.m.

Ashlie Dearmitt of the Scarlet Lily will teach the class, instructing attendees in the making of floral centerpieces to brighten up their homes.

The Palmer Opera House in Cuba is a vintage theater steeped with rich character and details of another era. It was built in 1867, and after a long and rich history fell into disrepair. Restoration by the Cuba Friends of Architecture, the nonprofit organization charged with maintaining the historic venue, began in 2006.
