Fall Term begins at The Learning Center of SCI.
Welcome back to school!
While many of our members took part in TLC’s summer sessions, others will be back from other summer adventures. It seems that everyone we meet is eager to greet the fall season, renew friendships, and dive into lectures and courses at The Learning Center!
We welcome to our instructional team Dr. Christopher Curtis, history professor and department head at Armstrong State University. Dr. Curtis will be rounding out TLC’s four years of study of the American Civil War in its 150th commemoration. The year we are ending this fall parallels the year 1864 and reminds us of those dramatic events in Savannah as the Civil War drew toward its conclusion. Dr. Curtis’s lecture series, paired with fascinating site visits, comprise an unforgettable nine-week course.
We celebrate December with a special luncheon, lecture, and film screening on Thursday, December 11. Michael Jordan, award-winning historian and film documentarian, returns to Savannah to discuss his 90-minute film Savannah in the Civil War. Encompassing all of the war years in our city, this film reveals incredible historical events and facts that make the period come alive. We are grateful to First Presbyterian Church on Washington Avenue for hosting this unique event.
TLC members familiar with Wednesday’s lunches will be pleased to discover that SAGE (that’s Successful Aging) lunch service is expanding to four days per week expressly for The Learning Center. Tuesdays through Fridays, members and visitors may enjoy a delicious meal beginning at 11am. Courses and other programs are strategically scheduled to end and resume at times that make lunch at TLC a tasty and convenient choice. Although our price has risen to $6 per meal, we’re sure you’ll agree that lunch at TLC remains one of Savannah’s best bargains.
Finally – and in the spirit of keeping in touch – it’s our pleasure to announce a weekly TLC news message. Delivered every Friday via e-mail from the desk of the director, this short message will include announcements, reminders, and other information important to The Learning Center community. We will send the first message on Friday, September 12, using the e-mail addresses we have in our members’ profiles. If you have not shared your e-mail address with us and would like to receive the weekly updates, just let us know.
Welcome to a new season of intellectual discovery at The Learning Center of SCI, and remember to let us know if we can do anything to make your experience more richly fulfilling.
