ElderCollege launches spring courses


ElderCollege recently launched its array of courses at its Chatham-Kent campus.

Available for people 55 plus, course registration for any of the 78 courses available in Windsor, Essex and Chatham-Kent began online on Feb. 12 although one can register for courses throughout the entire spring semester.

One feature of ElderCollege is that you are able to take courses anywhere in the ElderCollege system such as Windsor, Chatham-Kent, Tecumseh, Essex, LaSalle or Amherstburg.

C-K ElderCollege has several courses, including one offered by author Fred Osmon about murders in Chatham-Kent. “Murder He Wrote” based on his new book “Taking care of Business.”

The course in Dresden is presented by Allen Kominek at the Olde Czech Hall on the “Czech Migration to Kent County and their Contribution to our Community.”

Noted Reiki teachers Donna and Geoff are offering a course that will let you learn how to develop deep relaxation, releasing tension and stress.

There are also some courses with pick-up in Blenheim including two bus trips – a one-day exploration of secrets of Elgin County and a three-day trip to “Stratford and Beyond” which includes the musical “Chicago” at the Festival Theatre.

ElderCollege courses are offered by volunteers. Course fees are moderate, officials said. You can take up to 12 courses for only $155.

This is ElderCollege’s 10th year of serving Southwestern Ontario. Course may be found and registered in online at: www.eldercollege.ca or by calling Laura Macmillan at 519-253-3000 x4944 or Catherine Fettes at 519-253-3000 x4901. Printed course catalogues are also available.
