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 2020, membership will be from April 1st, 2020 to March 31st, 2021.

I have attended the Center for Lifelong Learning for more than 15 years. Programs are consistently interesting and inspiring, and help us recognize life’s wonders and challenges as they evolve. The fellowship of learning, discussing, dining, and laughing together have been a blessing for me and many others who attend. We are so fortunate to have Phoebe Needles Center, Inc. in our rural and far-flung county. My participation in the CLL keeps me on my toes mentally, spiritually, and socially as it enriches my life each month.
