Celebration Lifelong proudly announces its September 22nd evening lecture, The US Constitution: Conflict to Compromise. It will be presented via Zoom at 7:00 p.m. and will be open to the public. Guest lecturer Carl Creasman is a professor of history at Valencia College and is sponsored by Daughters of the American Revolution Constitution Week. As a tie-in to the lecture, the Lifelong Book Club will discuss Travels with George: In Search of Washington and His Legacy by Nathaniel Philbrick on September 28 at 10:30 a.m. The book chronicles Washington’s travels as a new president through all thirteen former colonies to drum up support for the new constitution and encourage Americans to “form a more perfect Union.” All Lifelong members are invited to join the book discussion on Zoom.

Lifelong began just over ten years ago when a small group of friends gathered to talk about the challenges of aging in Celebration. Among the topics of conversation was the need for adult learning opportunities. As the idea developed, the group brought in more volunteers, did some brainstorming and drafted a vision for creating an environment to stimulate lifelong learning.

Celebration is home to many talented individuals who have a wealth of experiences and knowledge in a variety of disciplines. The planning group began to ask some of these residents if they would be willing to teach classes in their areas of expertise. Over the years the hard work of this small band of committed community members morphed into the volunteer Steering Committee which guides the curriculum and operations of Celebration Lifelong.

This fall features the return of many in-person classes after over two years of holding most classes and lectures over Zoom. The team of talented, volunteer instructors, including ten who are new to the program, have worked diligently to prepare the over forty course and fourteen lectures being offered during three, three-week fall sessions. Some of the lectures will be held in the evening, and a few will be open to everyone.

The first session of the fall term begins on September 6, and registration is now open!. To view the Fall 2022 Catalog and registration information, visit www.CelebrationLifelong.org.
