Lifelong Learning information session

Those interested in becoming involved in a venture to provide lifelong learning opportunities for older adults are invited to a community information session at Central Lakes College at 3:30 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 14 in the Brainerd campus cafeteria. This session is intended to outline offerings and elicit ideas and support for the Center and its functions. The Center for Lifelong Learning at Central Lakes College expects to offer its first programming this fall, said Bill Brekken, coordinator. “This information session is the next step to move forward, driven by our community,” he said. “We’re hoping those who want a say in the offerings will attend and let their voices be heard.” Bill said the goal is to have an expanded set of offerings in place by January, including discussion groups, how-to sessions, volunteer connections, and enrichment classes. The Center is a cooperative venture with a large reliance upon volunteers from the community. “Our goal is to meet the growing and diverse needs of this area’s aging adult population and provide an outlet to showcase their unique value as part of an extended learning community,” Bill said.
