Winter is also a bleak time on the Outer Banks. It’s cold and windy, stores are closed, many seasonal workers are stuck at home. So After Dark provides a respite from the winter blues and a chance to socialize with others—making new friends and acquaintances.
Finally, After Dark is the primary fundraiser for All Saint’s outreach programs to the community.
All proceeds go to the church’s funding for these projects, and over the past seven years, that has translated into $75,000 in donations to Dare County charities and other community programs, such as the Outer Banks Relief Foundation and Outer Banks Interfaith Community Outreach.
The courses start at 7 p.m. and run Monday through Friday. Cooking classes typically start at 6:30 p.m.
Maximum class size varies, but cooking classes are restricted to 20 students.
The courses are grouped into four broad categories; Cooking; Arts, Flowers, Crafts & Hobbies; Health & Well Being; and General Interest, which is even broader, offering courses as far-ranging as wine and beer to computers to jazz music and literature.
Many classes fill up quickly, especially those involving food, wine, beer and a handful of the esoteric courses in the General Interest category, especially religion, culture and history.
After Dark kicks off on Jan. 30 and runs until Feb. 24.
Registration opens at 9 a.m. on Dec. 31 and can be accomplished by calling the church at 252-261-6674, e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or in person from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday at 40 Pintail Trail in Southern Shores.

During winter, many folks suffer from SAD, “Seasonal Adjustment Disorder.”
This year, try AD, “After Dark” as an anecdote or possible cure for the winter blues.
