If you are 50+ and would like to learn something new, ElderCollege is a great place to start

Another year has passed, and the time has come to greet a new year.

Why not start this new year by acquiring a new interest or skill? If you are 50+ and would like to learn something new, ElderCollege is a great place to start.

Join them at a public information session on Friday, Jan. 11 from 1:15 to 3 p.m. at North Island College, for refreshments and an overview of the course offerings and how to register.

Available now in various community locations is the ElderCollege 2019 Winter Newsletter outlining a variety of local, general interest and self-help courses and workshops in health, cooking, fitness, history, mobility, current events, computers, lapidary and finance.

Explore your inner poet, learn carpentry skills, walk the BeaverLodge Lands, join the Campbell River museum historians to explore the last 60 years in Campbell River or go on a road trip to Gold River to explore the history of the area, or hear about the Northwest Passage. Better living courses include fraud awareness, and a series on various aspects of healthy living such as exercise, hearing, nutrition and heart health.

The newsletter is also available online at: https://www.nic.bc.ca/continuing-education/eldercollege/campbell-river/.

ElderCollege has been offering courses in the community through North Island College for 15 years. Courses are taught by volunteers and range from a single session to eight sessions. A membership fee of $10 gives you access to low cost courses with topics to suit every interest.
