Adult Enrichment Program

Our enrichment program strives to provide members of our adult community with a variety of opportunities to engage in lifelong learning.  We offer courses to encourage healthy lifestyles, increase skills, pursue passions, and meet new people in a friendly environment.

Thank you to all students and instructors who participated in our Spring 2017 program. 

The Fall 2017 semester begins at the end of September.  Please check back here in August for our brochure.
