UWF Leisure Learning to host 20th anniversary Open House

The University of West Florida Leisure Learning program within the Department of Continuing Education will celebrate its 20th anniversary with an open house on Sept. 1, 2016, from 3 to 4:30 p.m. at the Argonaut Athletic Club on the UWF Pensacola Campus. Adults ages 55 and older are invited to learn more about the program and its benefits.

The open house will include information about the program, a meet and greet with Leisure Learning instructors, opportunities to register for an annual membership and individual courses, and light refreshments.

Leisure Learning provides stimulating programs for seasoned adults who are interested in joining a spirited community of intellectual contemporaries. Courses planned for the Fall 2016 semester include “Plan for your Future, Make It Happen,” “What’s in a Name: The Ruby Slipper,” “Don’t Go Broke in Assisted Living” and more.

“Being involved with Leisure Learning, both as a student and as a presenter, has deepened my appreciation of how well this program serves the community,” said Pastor Mary E. Peterson, who has been a member of the program for two years. “Through my connection with the Leisure Learning Society, I’ve met delightful people who find joy in lifelong learning. The incredible variety of offerings provides something for everyone.”

The $35 annual membership fee covers 12 months from the date joined, as well as the ability to register for all Leisure Learning classes, tours and events, ranging from $12 to $30 each; discounted rates to cultural events on campus and in the community; a free Leisure Learning parking decal for the UWF Pensacola Campus; eligibility to purchase a Nautilus Card, which can be used for various benefits; and a printed class catalog, mailed each semester.
