Current Economics in Everyday Life

Ferd Levy has been part of the Lifespan teacher family for a long time.   And every session his followers always want him back.  He leads a lively discussion about economic problems and solutions as well as other topics that impact our bottom line.  And we all know that this is an interesting time, so it should be an even more lively session than normal.

Older But Still Getting Wiser

Older But Still Getting Wiser

We decided to try something different with our Older but Still Getting Wiser Series! This session we are having it first thing in the morning.

we still are planning on a series of different speakers talking about all sort of issues that are important to all of us who want to age our own way! We may not have a choice about getting older but we sure have a choice about how we do it.

We start this session with Charles Josey talking about “Capturing Your Story!” We will also have some of our old favorites returning – with downsizing hints and more Southern Humorists. And we, as always, will have fun learning together.

Women in the Bible

We thought it might be a good idea to spend a little time studying the women in the Bible. We heard a great deal about women in Georgia from Frances Harrold last session and it got us thinking. So we decided to have our Spirituality Series this session be all about Women in the Bible.

We have some of the ladies from the Society of Anna the Prophet, a recognized religious order of the Episcopal Church. It should be really interesting.

Art Studio I

Art Studio – Session 1

We are very excited that our own Mimi Roberts and Norma Pitzer are going to lead our art studio once again this session. But this time, there is a twist! You will find this session in both the 10 and 11:15 class times. Feel free to enjoy one or both. Some folks just thought they needed more time to take full advantage of all the talent these two bring. And, we may have some additional guest lecturers as well.

Tai Chi

Tai Chi helps improve balance because it targets all the physical components needed to stay upright.  Gayle Christian is our new Tai Chi instructor.  Gayle trained under Dr. Paul Lam, is a premier instructor and is certified in Tai Chi for arthritis and fall prevention.  There is a fee of $25 with registration, or $50 for Tai Chi only.
