The Mission of The Phoebe Needles Center

The Center for Lifelong Learning

The Center for Lifelong Learning began in March, 2003. It is a monthly program for adults 55+ that focuses on education and fellowship. A seminar in the morning is followed by a delicious lunch. The seminars are on a variety of topics from "How to Spot an Antique", to "50 years of Space", and "The Religious Journey of Thomas Jefferson". This is a great opportunity to have a day in the beautiful surroundings of the Phoebe Needles Center for learning and fellowship.

This is a membership program that costs $45 per person or $65 per couple. The seminars are offered at no cost to members, and $8 to non-members. Lunch is $10 per person.

        For the year 2017, Membership will be from February to February.
