Learning in Full Bloom!

 Dear Friends of Adult Education,

Welcome to our winter/spring semester and your next opportunity to experience Learning in Full Bloom! Our communities are at the heart of all of our programs. Your feedback and support are critical to our mission of providing quality educational and enrichment services to young and old alike. We have recently partnered with a number of area organizations in an effort to provide even more learning opportunities for our communities. Those partnerships include the CLC YMCA, the Wawenok Golf Club, the National Digital Equity Center, and the Academy of Medical Professions in addition to our long-time partnership with LincolnHealth. Through these partnerships, we hope to be able to provide greater learning opportunities for our students while supporting the important work of each of these organizations.

We hope you’ll take time to thoroughly review the contents of this brochure to see if something sparks your interest as a participant or triggers an idea for a class that you yourself would like to offer in the future. Either way, we hope you will enjoy perusing the contents of Learning in Full Bloom to find the perfect learning path for YOU!

We have 32 new offerings along with many of your tried and true favorites. Be sure to check out our once in a life time trip to the French Riviera on page 35! Our $5 EARLYBIRD discount is valid through January 31st. Thank you for your ongoing support of Adult & Community Education. We’re here to make a difference!

Happy New Year!
