Elder College is ready for the fall semester, says Barry Sale, curriculum committee chair.
The first step is a membership sign-up at the Seniors Activity Centre on Wednesday, Sept. 5, from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.
Membership and course registration will follow a week later, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 12, at St. Andrew’s United Church.
Elder College caters to those 50 years of age and older.
Courses are held during the day and are low in cost, Sale explained.
New courses to be offered this fall include Travel Tips for Seniors, a course on i-Movies and i-Photos, creative writing and photographers.
Returning favourites include the Cariboo History Tour, Philosophers’ Café and two computer classes.
Other courses include Origami, drawing and a self-discovery class on the i_Pad.
Free community courses include genealogy, wealth management, life story workshop and healthy living with chronic conditions.
Registration is required for these courses.
