Lifelong Learners take notice

Caroline Cline

If you have an interest in birding, hiking, information about the Grand Canyon, financial strategies, book discussions, the national debt, nutrition for seniors, science in the 20th century, a healthy brain, or many, many other subjects, join New Frontiers for Lifelong Learning. A total of 70 plus classes are offered for the spring semester. After paying $60 for the spring semester and summer session, a person can sign up for as many classes as their schedule will allow on February 2 on a computer. The cost was $80 if you signed up in the fall. Classes meet at the three MCC locations (Southern Ave. and Dobson Rd, downtown at 165 N. Centennial Way, and Red Mountain at McKellips and Power Rds.), East Valley Adult Resource Centers at 247 N. Macdonald St. and 7550 E. Adobe Rd. and many other locations in Mesa.
