We want to celebrate with the many senior learners who have enjoyed being a part of the program over the past 20 years, said Kevin ONeill, WKCTC community education director. Everyone reminiscing about the fun times theyve shared through the hundreds of varying activities, events and field trips throughout the region will be wonderful.

Some of the past seniors learning adventures include learning about:

making sound financial investments and estate planning,
Paducahs historic houses of worship, UNESCO Creative City designation and revitalized Coca-Cola plant,
cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and caring for eyes with diabetes,

how to stay connected with family and friends with Facebook,
strengthening exercise for balance and posture,
how emergency organizations protects the public, and much more!
