“Lifelong learning expands your intellectual, social, spiritual and physical horizons” writes Nancy Merz Nordstrom, author of the book, Learning Later, Living Greater:  The Secret for Making the Most of Your After 50 Years**

Older adults who participate in the Shepherd’s Center of Lexington Adventures in Learning (life long learning programs) seek knowledge, get together to share it, ask questions, and encounter new ideas and insights.  

Here are some other benefits:
  • Meet new and interesting people while enlarging our interests and horizons
  • Opportunities to volunteer and to help those in need
  • Explore new skills and develop new interests
  • Opportunities to develop new strategies on how to handle change
  • Make new connections in the community and enrich established friendships
  • Stay mentally and physically fit – and have fun!

Because of the continued coronavirus threat, shepherd's Center of Lexington will not meet for the Winter or Spring 2021 Adventures in Learning sessions.  We hope to be back in business in the Fall!

“You don’t grow old: when you cease to learn you are old.”   ~Reuel L. Howe;               
“Learning is ever in the freshness of its youth, even for the old.”  ~Aeschylus;

Education seems to be an elixir that can bring us a healthy body and mind throughout adulthood and even a long life.”  ~ Margie Lackman, Brandeis University                            

Board Chair, Kay Mitchell and board member,  Terri Swindler, discuss registrations for participants in the "Adventures in Learning" Winter Term.
