Fall 2021 Term- in session

Fall class registration is closed

We are happy to announce the Lifelong Learning Fall 2021 line-up of classes.  We are thrilled to be able to welcome our Lifelong Learners back to the Historic Brookstown Inn classroom for 2 in-person classes and 1 amazing on-line Zoom evening class  starting in late September.

Safety of our participants, staff and instructors remain our #1 priority.  All in-person classes will cap at no more than 24 students, less than 50% classroom occupancy, to allow for CDC guidance and proper social distancing.  Masks covering both the nose and mouth will be required regardless of vaccination status.  For those returning students, our much used “coffee bar” will remain closed this Fall term to Lifelong Learners t we hope to open it in the Spring term. Please feel free to bring your favorite water bottle or travel mug.
