SPICE Programs

Enriching Experiences for Adult Learners

SPICE programs affirm life, stimulate the brain, help overcome social isolation, and invoke laughter.  The courses offered span the gamut of human interests-- from music, politics, art, entertainment, history, technology, and the world around us.

Courses meet in the mornings between 10:30 and 12 once a week.  There is a charge for the course due to the varied and high caliber speakers that lead us.
