Published on: January 09, 2012
The Academy for Lifelong Learning at Lone Star College-Montgomery, a program for the 50-plus retired or semi-retired community, will host an open house on Saturday, January 21, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., in the Commons Building (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 classes offered during the upcoming spring semester, as well as meet some of the class instructors, socialize with other academy members, and register for classes.
Also at the open house, the Volunteer of the Year will be recognized.
“If retirees or recent transplants to the area are looking for something that provides intellectual growth, the ALL program at LSC-Montgomery is the perfect match,” said Donna Smith Burns, continuing education coordinator at LSC-Montgomery.
ALL is a membership organization filled with lectures, seminars, and discussions geared toward individuals over 50 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.
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.
Each of the five colleges within the Lone Star College System offer continuing education for older, active adults through the ALL organization. Course offerings and program events vary with each campus.
