Event is free and open to public
SPRINGFIELD—A desire to learn has no age limit, and LLCC is showcasing learning opportunities for those ages 50 and older at its Academy for Lifelong Learning summer kickoff. It will be held Thursday, Aug. 10 from 1-3:30 p.m. at the Trutter Center on the LLCC-Springfield campus.
The event includes an ice cream social and features music provided by Chris Vallillo, a singer/songwriter and folk musician who makes the people and place of “unmetropolitan” America come to life in song. ALL’s summer kickoff is free and open to the public, but registration is requested.
“The Academy of Lifelong Learning is a really exciting program with lots of welcoming members. It attracts energetic, curious people who have lots of interests, want to make new friends and want to continue learning into and throughout their retirement years,” says Judy Jozaitis, Ed.D., vice president of workforce development and community education. “The kickoff is a great time to come and see if this is something you’ve been missing.”
A variety of programs and special interest groups are available to ALL members. “From discussions about current events and books, to travel opportunities and golf, there is something for everyone,” adds Dr. Jozaitis.
Those attending the summer kickoff event are encouraged to gather information on the many opportunities and activities open to ALL members, ask questions about membership and enjoy the festivities.
