Northwoods retirees looking for just-for-the-fun-of-it learning opportunities will find a wide variety of classes to select from in the Nicolet College Learning in Retirement Fall Session.
Upcoming offerings include an introduction to DNA technology, the popular Ced’s Nature Study, astronomy, a travelogue on Nicaragua, a historical tour of Crandon, a discussion of science and religion, and a look at our prison system, along with many others.
Outdoor adventures will include a bike ride along the Wisconsin River along with hiking and paddling excursions.
“Any of these offerings is a great way for active retirees to learn new things and meet new people,” said Nancy Brissee, Nicolet LIR community representative. “The whole point is to have fun and stay active and every class offers the opportunity to do exactly that.”
Classes will be held throughout the Northwoods in Rhinelander, Three Lakes, Woodruff, Crandon, and Tomahawk. Some classes will meet just once while others are held once a week over the course of months. About 300 Northwoods retirees belong to the organization.
An annual LIR membership is $35. Members can take as many or as few classes as they desire. There are no tests or grades in any class – only learning just for the fun of it.
