CLR offers courses for older adults at RVC

An increasing number of semi-retired and retired individuals who share a love of learning are going back to school—to the Center for Learning in Retirement (CLR).

CLR is a community-based membership organization and “Lifelong Learning” branch of Rock Valley College. A yearly membership fee of $22 entitles a person to register for fall, winter and summer classes.

Courses are available in humanities, performing arts, history, social sciences, physical and biological sciences; each class is taught by volunteers. Classes range in price from $8 to $30 with the majority being $8 and $13.

Recently, CLR celebrated its 12th anniversary. Participants are age 50 and older.

Membership in CLR entitles a person to the Center’s newsletter four times a year, registration for trips, and an opportunity to participate in the Golden Eagles Fitness Program.

Classes begin Sept. 6 and run into December. More info: Sara Skaggs at 921-3930.
