ElderCollege information forum on new semester on Sespt. 19

It’s almost fall and, like the geese, Comox Valley ElderCollege is back.

As a start to the new semester, ElderCollege will hold its free information forum on Saturday, Sept. 19, 10 a.m. in the Stan Hagen Theatre, North Island College, in Courtenay.

All residents of the Valley aged 55 or more are welcome to attend the forum.

At the forum, course leaders are allowed two minutes to describe their courses.  This popular event gives members of the public an opportunity to decide on which courses and which course leaders will best match their personal interests.

Some courses run once a week for eight, six or four weeks, while others are offered on a single afternoon.

This semester ElderCollege will provide over 50 courses on a wide variety of topics. And there is not one single test or quiz, nothing but lively discussion in a fun learning environment.

Comox Valley ElderCollege is a volunteer organization with low costs ranging from $10 for a single session course to $40 for the series of Saturday lectures.

This semester the lecture series hosts a number of highly regarded First Nations artists under the title Inheritance to Intuition: Seven Contemporary Northwest Coast First Nations Artists.

The required membership for ElderCollege is $10 and is available now online at nic.bc.ca/ec or in person in the registration office at the North Island College campus.

Details of all courses are provided in the Fall Semester Newsletter, available on the website.

Further information can be obtained at 250-334-5000 ext. 4602 or  eldercollegecv@nic.bc.ca

Course registration begins at 9 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 21, in person at North Island College or online at nic.bc.ca/ec
