Forty-five participants of the ElderCollege program at Terra State Community College recently returned from a seven-day trip exploring several provinces of Canada.
They spent three days on the Coudres Island, located in the St. Lawrence River, where they were able to view the island and the Catholic Church. Then they spent an afternoon whale watching in Catherine’s Bay. On the return home, they had guided tours of Quebec City and Montreal.
The ElderCollege program has several trips already scheduled for 2013, including a golfer winter getaway in March and a trip to the Savannah, Ga. area in April.

ElderCollege is a membership organization at Terra open to the public for adults age 50 and beyond who share a common desire to learn. No previous college experience is necessary; just a desire to learn. The course schedule varies from term to term but typically includes such topics as history, art and music. As mentioned, there are also several educational outing opportunities during each term not limited to those 50 or older.
