The open house is a chance to learn about the new and recurring ALL classes being offered during the upcoming spring semester, as well as register for classes, socialize with other academy members, and meet some of the class instructors. The ALL organization will also recognize the Volunteer of the Year at this event.
ALL is a membership organization filled with lectures, seminars, and discussions geared toward the 50-plus retired or semi-retired individual interested in remaining “plugged in” to the academic, learning environment. The classes are informal and informational and cover a variety of topics such as art, computer technology, personal growth, languages, history, travel and more.
Donna Smith Burns, program manager for adult and personal enrichment at LSC-Montgomery, said this is a great time to join ALL, since over 70 percent of the lectures and workshops are free.
“Being a part of the ALL program is the greatest entertainment value in town,” said Smith Burns. “People can view the entire schedule of classes online or pick up a hard copy at our campus or at the public library.”
A small annual membership fee of $35 allows members to take academy courses free of charge or at a minimal rate. The annual membership lasts from September 1 to August 31.
