Summer is winding down and our thoughts turn to fall.

If you are 55 or older, fall means it’s time to consider coming to ElderCollege for our 2013 fall semester.

An information forum will be held at the Stan Hagen Theatre at North Island College this Saturday at 10 a.m. This is the perfect opportunity to listen to a brief description of each course being offered and to meet course leaders.

Registration for courses starts at 9 a.m. on Sept. 18 online at www.nic.bc.ca/ec or in person in the registration office on the NIC campus. All memberships are due at that time as well, and are $10 per year.

The lecture series Our Historical Mosaic: Where Did We Come From starts Sept. 28 and runs for eight Saturday mornings. The regular semester starts the week of Oct. 1, with eight-week courses, six-week courses, four-week courses and one-day courses offered in a wide variety of topics.

For full descriptions, times, and dates, go to the ElderCollege newsletter online at www.nic.bc.ca/ec. Newsletters are also available in all of the libraries or you could pick one up at the college.

For more information, phone 250-334-5000 (local 4602) between 8:30 a.m. and noon Mondays to Fridays.
