Dear Lifelong Learner,

Ah, summer. Guests arriving at any minute…gardening…golfing…eating lobster down at the wharf. And renewing your Coastal Senior College membership! Plan ahead for fun, intriguing things to do when summer is over.

When your fall catalog arrives, you’ll find a wide range of courses and activities. They range from James Joyce and the historical Jesus to geology and Maine’s fishing grounds, from Jewish prayer and legal issues in science fiction to opera and democracy, from the architecture of Christian churches to stories of the sea and memoir writing. Popular discussion groups about environmental and political change will continue.  In addition the Events Committee is planning a varied program of presentations and field trips linked to current topics.

Each class and activity offers the opportunity for you to meet other seniors who are interested in exploring new ideas.

By joining CSC you receive free memberships at the Skidompha, Thomaston, and Bremen libraries. (For Skidompha alone that’s a savings of $40!)

You also have the option to enroll in classes offered by Midcoast Senior College in Brunswick, the Senior College at Belfast in the Hutchinson Center, the University of Maine at Augusta Senior College, or any of the 13 other senior colleges in the state.

Your new membership will extend from July 1, 2016, through June 30, 2017, and it still costs just $25. Scholarships are available to members for up to two courses a year.

Click here for a membership form. Please print out a separate form for each applicant. You may also register by phone by calling  207-596-6906.

Enjoy your summer! Know you will stay challenged all year long by renewing your membership in Coastal Senior College now and getting ready to take new courses next year.
