The Mission of The Phoebe Needles Center

The Center for Lifelong Learning

The Center for Lifelong Learning began in March, 2003. It is a monthly program for adults 55+ that focuses on education and fellowship. A seminar in the morning is followed by a delicious lunch. The seminars are on a variety of topics from "How to Spot an Antique", to "50 years of Space", and "The Religious Journey of Thomas Jefferson". This is a great opportunity to have a day in the beautiful surroundings of the Phoebe Needles Center for learning and fellowship.

This is a membership program that costs $45 per person or $65 per couple. The seminars are offered at no cost to members, and $8 to non-members. Lunch is $10 per person.

        For the year 2019, Membership will be from March 2019 to February 2020.

Please print the membership form, attach payment, and return to the Phoebe Needles Center. Checks should be endorsed to: The Phoebe Needles Center.
