The public is invited to learn more about the Lone Star College-Kingwood Academy for Lifelong Learning (ALL) program during two open house events: Wednesday, Aug. 13, 2-4 p.m. at the LSC-Atascocita Center and Thursday, Aug. 21, 1-3 p.m. at the East Montgomery County Improvement District (EMCID) Complex in New Caney.
“The ALL program offers non-credit courses, lectures and social activities for area senior adults age 50 and older. Depending upon the interest of the members, the curriculum may range from conversational Spanish to yoga to digital photography,” said Pat Chandler, ALL program manager. The ALL open house gives individuals a chance to meet others and register to become a member of the program. Classes have been offered at the EMCID site for 10 years and this anniversary milestone will be celebrated.
The LSC-Kingwood ALL program began in February 2004. In just ten years the program has grown to more than 1,000 active members. Annual membership is $20 (Sept. 1-Aug. 31) and members can take classes at both locations. All courses are free and taught by volunteers; there are no educational requirements.
EMCID is located at 21575 Highway 59 North in New Caney. The LSC-Atascocita Center is located at 15903 West Lake Houston Parkway.
