Garrett Institute for Lifelong Learning announces November courses
The Garrett Institute for Lifelong Learning (GILL) group, operating under Garrett College Continuing Education and Workforce Development, recently announced three upcoming courses for the month of November. GILL members seek to enrich their lives by participating in stimulating education, cultural and social programs. As such, the topic sessions are developed by the group.
November 5th, 3-5 p.m., The Alley, Oakland, Md.
Lace up those ugly shoes and go for a strike! The Alley offers $2 shoe rentals and $2 games on Tuesday afternoons. Please note – registration is requested ahead of time, and members will be responsible for their shoe rental and game fees.
To the Moon and Back
November 13th and 20th, 6-8 p.m., GC Southern Outreach Center, Oakland
This year marks the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 realizing President Kennedy's challenge to land a man on the moon by end of the 1960s. Join us for a two-night class to discuss the origins of the space race and the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo programs that made it happen. Leading the class will be Jay Clark, who at five years old watched Neil Armstrong take that "small step" and has been fascinated by the space program ever since. The cost to attend is $18.
November 13th, 3:30-5 p.m., Sipside in Oakland
Come, sit down, relax, and enjoy a beverage as we talk about the future direction for the GILL organization, such as ‘where are we going’, how can this organization meet the needs of the community and the desires of our members’, and ‘what’s interesting?’. There is no cost to attend but registration beforehand is encouraged.
Registration is required for each session. If you are not a GILL member and wish to join in order to register for a session, please contact Continuing Education Workforce Development at 301-387-3781.
