To complete your online registration, sign in to our website (top right corner) and go to the Classes page. From there, click on My Wish List (in the left column) to see your saved classes, add them to your cart, and then complete the checkout and payment process. Please note that you are not enrolled until you finalize your registration and pay.

Dear Friends,

Lisa, Melody, Vicki, and I look forward to seeing you all during our fall term! 

We have a record number of offerings - 155 - and believe you’ll  find many classes that intrigue you. In addition, we’re back again this fall with our Taste of Oasis open house event. This year, we’ll have a mini-concert from our very own Oasis Entertainers chorus group, a mini-lecture on overall health issues, a balance demonstration, yummy food, and raffle drawings. The BCBSNM CareVan will be on site to provide a variety of screenings. I encourage you to bring a friend and stop by Friday September 22nd from 10:00am-noon at the Oasis office/classroom!

We are saying goodbye and thank you to Kirk Gulledge who has served on the Oasis Albuquerque board for many years. We will miss you, Kirk! And welcome to new board member, Dawn Anderson. In addition, we welcome Cynthia LaCoe-Maniaci to the Oasis team as our new Health & Wellness Coordinator. You’ll see Cynthia around the office and we look forward to highlighting her in the next catalog.

I encourage you to bring a friend and stop by Friday September 22nd from 10 to noon at Oasis!

Executive Director
