(Lebanon) – The Constitutional Organization Of Lebanon (COOL), a conservative, non-partisan political action committee registered with the Pennsylvania Department of State, has announced its course offerings for the Winter 2009 cycle.

Laurel Lynn Petolicchio of Jackson Township, 2009 Chairman for COOL, said that the four-year old organization will be offering two classes on the Constitution – A More Perfect Union and the first part of Institute On The Constitution (IOTC) in February and March.

"After the successful classes we had last year, the decision was made to try and expand our course offerings as well as locales for our courses," Petolicchio said. "With the increasing interest people have in the Constitution, especially since the November election, it only made sense to hit the ground running in 2009."

According to Petolicchio, A More Perfect Union is a half day course intended to provide participants with a broad overview of the events leading up the Constitutional Convention and what issues were debated and how the Constitution came to into being.

"’Perfect Union’ is really intended as an introductory course for people who may feel overwhelmed by the idea of learning more about the Constitution," she said. "And we have purposely designed the class to allow participants to get comfortable with this kind of study."

"For people who want to delve a little deeper into the Constitution and the history behind it, the IOTC provides a format for more group discussion and participation," she said.

Petolicchio also noted that the IOTC is more intensive in it’s approach and is held over a four week period, requiring a more consistent commitment on the part of the participants.

"A More Perfect Union" will he held on Saturday, February 7, at Open Door Baptist Church in Lebanon and on Saturday, February 28, at Lebanon Area Evangelical Free Church in Jonestown. Both classes will run from 9:00 AM thru Noon.

"Institute On The Constitution, Part 1" will be held every consecutive Saturday from February 28 thru March 21 at Open Door Baptist Church and will run from 9:00 AM thru Noon.

The cost for each course is $15 per person and $25 per household, and includes complimentary membership in COOL for the year.
