The Elder College program at Panorama Recreation is expanding, thanks to a New Horizons Grant.
The program, taught by volunteer instructors, offers affordable and accessible education for people 50 and older. The grant has allowed Panorama Recreation to renovate and upgrade an Elder College classroom, develop a new garden and invest more time creating and maintaining community partnerships.
The range of topics covered in the Elder College workshops is broad, ranging from a two-hour Social Media Basics class to an examination of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Kindred Spirits, over six two-hour sessions.
Annual memberships are $15, with individual courses ranging from free to $12 per class. To register, call 250-656-7271 or visit the Panorama Recreation Centre.
