To make sense of the world around you, attend the Senior Center current events class, Tues., Jan. 22, at 11 a.m. Return to the Center at 1:30 p.m. that same day and learn beginning French. Then on Wed,, Jan. 23, return for a theatre class at 1:45 p.m.

After the Wednesday event at the Senior Center, stroll southeast across the Worthington Village Green to the intersection of State Route 23 (High Street) and State Route 161 (Dublin-Granville Road). From there, walk east across Dublin-Granville to see St. John’s Episcopal Church, at 700 North High St.
Completed in 1831, St. John’s is a history lesson in itself. The modest, brick structure with its square, wooden tower rising above the surrounding trees still stands at the north end of the southeast quadrant of the Green. If the door is open, peek in, and see the beautifully restored sanctuary.
Return to the church on Sunday, Jan. 27, at 3:00 p.m. for an early Mardi Gras celebration. Hear dixieland jazz as it was meant to be heard performed by Jim Masters and the Fat Tuesday Band. Admission is free, and any offerings will support the Music Series at St. John’s.
After leaving the church, walk back across High at Dublin-Granville, and then turn left and walk south. A short distance beyond the intersection of New England Avenue and High, pass through the gate on your right, and enter La Chatelaine Bakery and Bistro for a taste of authentic French cuisine.
At 5:30 p.m., that same Wed., Jan. 23, at La Chatelaine, participate in “Get Smart! Book Discussion Group," organized by the Worthington Public Library and the local Chamber of Commerce. Under discussion is “You Say More than You Think” by Janine Driver.
