Thank you for visiting our website. We are an organization within the Blue Ridge Community College that caters to the interests of older adults in the area of Henderson County, NC. We offer classes consisting of no more than four two-hour sessions on a variety of subjects.  We also have local visits to areas of interest called EdVentures, educational adventures.   In addition to the classes and EdVentures we have an interesting Brown Bag Lunch and a special Community Presentation.  We are also celebrating our 25th anniversary with a party.

We hope you will join us.
