Learning in Retirement moves to Fridays

The Learning in Retirement lecture series at Tabor College will move to Friday beginning this semester.

“It is with much consideration that we have decided to make this change to our historic meeting day,” LiR director Connie Isaac said. “By moving to Friday mornings, it will offer a much more relaxed atmosphere in the cafeteria.” Lunch is $4 for LiR participants.

Programs are held in the lobby of the Wohlgemuth Music Education Center at 9:45 a.m. Registration for the entire series of presentations is $15 per semester for an individual or $29 per couple. Admission is $4 for those who wish to attend only a few sessions.

Sessions will begin Feb. 24 with a presentation by Lori Walsh, a former preacher’s daughter who married a ministry man. She will share some of her experiences being involved with ministry and where that path has taken her, including time spent in residential camping ministries.
