We have arranged for a number of exciting and informative classes for this Spring Session. The classes are designed for you to have fun while keeping your gray cells active. Each class is a two hour session with a maximum of four sessions for any topic. The classes are held on the campus of the Blue Ridge Community College. In addition, our Great Decisions series of eight lectures on topics relating to foreign affairs will begin in February. For local trips you will be interested in our tours of some of the local industries and the detention center as well as our visit to the Duke Lemur Center in Durham and the Conservators’ Center in Burlington, NC. The topic of the Brown Bag Lunch is Human Trafficking, where we will have an interesting presentation followed by a lively discussion. Please join us to have fun, learn some new stuff and meet other adults.
