Learning Never Retires

Learning in Retirement was created for and is directed by retired and semi-retired Northwoods residents. The program offers short-term learning experiences in a relaxed, informal, and friendly environment. This is learning for the sheer pleasure of it. There are no grades, no tests, and no required attendance.

Membership is open to anyone age 50 and older. Current members come from a wide range of experiences and backgrounds, but all share a common belief – that learning is lifelong.
