Bethany UM Church Red Lion and York County Literacy Council have partnered to provide classes three nights per week for adult students to prepare for the GED exam.

Adults 18 and older are encouraged to call and register for the free classes. Classes are held at Bethany UM Church, Red Lion, and instruction is provided by YCLC. The goal is for the students to obtain their GED by end of 2013.

The current GED exam is given in sections, but students need to pass all sections by the end of 2013 or they forfeit what they have achieved and have to start all over again. As of January 2014 the GED exam will become more difficult and will be completely computer based.

Students may call YCLC (717) 845-8719 to register for the class in Red Lion or additional classes at YCLC.

Sponsors for the Red Lion class are: American Legion Post 543; Apple Automotive, Red Lion; Appraisal Services of York; Bethany UM Church Red Lion; Century 21 Dale Realty Co.; Chloe Eichelberger Textiles; Keener Kitchen Mfg. Co.; Lion Pharmacy; Mantz Miller Insurance Agency Inc.; Red Lion Lodge No. 649; Rissser Grain LLC; S & S Precision Tool, Inc.; Bruce R. & Madelyn G.
