Celebrate Valentine’s Day with Clayton State’s Center for Continuing Education

Are you looking for something different this Valentine’s Day? Check out That’s the website for Clayton State University’s Center for Continuing Education, which is holding three special events for the Valentine’s Day weekend. All three programs will be held in the Harry S. Downs Center on the main campus in Morrow, Ga.

Starting on Friday, Feb. 11, there’s the Valentine Murder Mystery Dinner from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. It’s an evening that begins with a murder, (well, not really, but you get the idea) only to climax with clues and a dinner buffet. The menu (for dinner, not the murder) includes; grilled chicken breast with fruit salsa garlic and rosemary roasted potatoes, vegetable medley, fresh mixed greens salad with raspberry vinaigrette on the side, bread and butter, and assorted desserts. The cost is $39 per person.

Then on Sunday, Feb. 13, you can choose between Massage for Couples (1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.) and Romantic Cupcakes and Cookies (2 p.m. to 5 p.m.)

If you want to learn how to give a full body massage to that massage "buddy" and not tire out after five minutes, Massage for Couples is for both of you. This class teaches some basic essentials of Swedish massage wherein partners will practice massage techniques on each other. However, as you might guess, registration is for couples only. As you also might guess, there aren’t many openings – spots are still available for just three more couples.

Each student should wear loose fitting, comfortable clothes and a swimming suit underneath. Each couple should bring two fluffy pillows with pillow cases, two twin flat sheets, a large floor blanket and their favorite lotion for massage. The cost is $49 per couple.

For those who don’t make it for the massage class, there are still cupcakes and cookies. Since filled cupcakes are all the rage in bakeries these days, you’ll learn the proper tools you will need to make them, practice the tricks for filling, and share some great recipes. Here’s a chance to learn how to embellish cupcakes and cookies with trendy damask, paisley and toile designs in butter cream, royal and fondant. You’ll also learn how to package your creations professionally with wraps, ties and stickers. The cost for this class is $35 per person.
