The Addolorata Villa in Wheeling, part of the Franciscan Communities, will be hosting the Summer of Learning 2019 LifeLong Learning Institute program, “Discover nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island,” presented in partnership with Harper College, on Wednesday, July 31, from 1:00 p.m. to 2 p.m. This is one of many enriching and entertaining educational opportunities available to Addolorata Villa residents and all local adults ages 55 and older.
Explore the heart of Canada’s Atlantic seacoast — the Maritime Provinces of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. Visit beautiful national parks, quaint fishing villages, sandy beaches, and historic forts. Tour the Alexander Graham Bell Museum and the farmhouse where the Anne of Green Gables novels were set. Learn about Celtic and Acadian cultures, see high tide at the Bay of Fundy and watch for whales and puffins along the rocky coast.
With no required educational background, homework, or grades, the Lifelong Learning Institute provides great discussions, new friendships, and the joy of learning among peers. To secure your spot in this free program, RSVP online or with Liz Starman at (847) 808-4421. Seating is limited.
