Published on: July 27, 2011




The Academy for Lifelong Learning (ALL) at Lone Star College-Montgomery, a program for the 50-plus retired or semi-retired community, will host an open house on Saturday, August 20, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., in The Commons (Building A). The public is invited, and entertainment and refreshments will be provided.

The open house is a chance to learn about the new and recurring ALL lectures and classes being offered during the upcoming fall semester, as well as meet some of the class instructors, socialize with other academy members, and register for any lecture or class.

Also at the open house, the Instructor of the Year will be recognized, as well as the new ALL board members.  

“We’re excited to kick-off another year of quality instruction and social activities that promote intellectual and personal growth through the ALL program,” said Donna Smith Burns, LSC-Montgomery’s ALL program manager. “Our medical series is popular this fall, which covers everything from skin cancer and joint replacements to specialized ‘Doc Talks’ at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Hospital. It’s a very informative and interesting series.”

ALL is a membership organization filled with lectures, seminars, and discussions geared toward the older, active adult 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.

The $35 annual membership fee opens doors for a full year of social activities and personal growth courses that are free of charge or cost only a minimal rate. The annual membership lasts from September 1 to August 31.

Each of the five colleges within the Lone Star College System offer continuing education for their older, active adults through the ALL organization. Course offerings and program events vary with each campus.
