Lifespring, an adult learning community, offers a broad range of noncredit educational activities for retired, semi-retired, and other adult participants. Lifespring’s goal is to provide diverse learning experiences for all its members, regardless of previous educational background. We recognize that many active retirees wish to continue to learn and grow and participate in an environment that is both social and encouraging. In this venue, we come together to share our knowledge and interests, and socialize with like-minded people.
Lifespring offers classes/courses, lectures, and events that provide opportunities for active adults and/or retirees to:
Presentations & Workshops
Save the date!
Although seemingly far away, we encourage you to save the following dates for winter presentations, which offer an opportunity for getting back together with Lifespring friends for stimulating mornings of lectures plus Q & A, 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m., held in the Community Room of the Saugerties Public Library.
The third program on February 14, 2018 features presenter Alba LaFiandra describing how in 1955, local tradesmen from Mt. Marion, Saugerties, and Glasco helped to build a funicular/railroad that ran down from a cottage on the ridge above in Mt. Marion to the Esopus Creek near Glenerie Falls. Mark your calendars now and remember that guests are welcome too.
