e-Newsletter editor needed:
CSC is looking for someone who likes to write and preferably has a little experience in doing press releases or newsletters, to compile our monthly e-newsletter. A fairly straightforward format is followed, and the editor requests information from the Events Committee and Curriculum, as well as other board members, for any news items they would like to post. The newsletter is sent out from URock to all CSC members on our email list. For those interested, please contact Shelly Swazey at firstname.lastname@example.org or Catherine Jewitt at email@example.com. And thank you Pat for the great job you have done with the newsletter over the last few years. You really raised the standard of this important CSC information vehicle!
Serving mid-coast Maine from Wiscasset to Camden, Coastal Senior College (CSC) provides intellectual stimulation and good company through classes and special events for seniors in Lincoln and Knox counties. Volunteer-driven and managed, CSC is part of Maine’s growing Maine Senior College Network affiliated with Campuses and Outreach Centers of the University of Maine System.
Highly knowledgeable instructors lead classes that typically meet for two hours during the week, usually for a full eight-week semester, which should allow you to fit at least one class into your schedule. There are no grades, exams, or term papers required!
Special events, forums, lectures, and field trips are also offered to CSC members throughout the year, often noted in one of our e-newsletter. Additional benefits of CSC membership include the opportunity to join the governing board, the operating committees, and volunteer opportunities such as planning special events, assisting instructors, and helping with office tasks.
Senior College is open to all seniors 50 years of age or more, and to their spouses or partners, who value education and have inquiring minds.
Coastal Senior College is located at 91 Camden Street, Suite 402 in Rockland, Maine, on the fourth floor of the Breakwater Building in Rockland at the home of University College facilities at Rockland (URock). Click here for directions.
