Print Article

BELOIT - The Society for Learning Unlimited (SLU) has a fall lineup of diverse educational programming which will kick off on a musical note.

Sessions are held to help attendees learn to use their mobile devices or to create a piece of glass art. The public is invited to attend one of the many classes available for a nominal fee.

"You are never too old to learn," said SLU Executive Administrator Pat Raymer. "It's a great learning and social experience."

SLU's kickoff event will be a performance by Dan Sullivan at 1 p.m. Sept. 4 at First Congregational Church, 801 Bushnell St. Cookies and coffee will be served following the kickoff event.

Sullivan will present a show honoring famous singers from the 1930s to the 1960s such as Nat King Cole, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, the Beach Boys and more.

Raymer added that this year's fall series includes many topics in the news such as abortion, sustainable energy, immunizations, and the U.S. forces in Afghanistan.

Raymer said the classes with the most pre-registration include "We all forget: The truth about memory loss and brain health" by Cori Marsh, Dementia Care Specialist at the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Rock County, and "The Confluence: If this land could talk" by Therese Oldenberg.

Director of the Rock County Humane Society Mike McManus will speak about what is happening regarding plans for the animal new shelter and its capital campaign, and State Sen. Janis Ringhand, D-Evansville, will give insights into the 2019 legislative session.

Booklets with the schedule of classes and costs are available at Beloit Public Library, Rockton, Roscoe and South Beloit libraries, Turtle Creek Bookstore, Grinnell Hall Senior Center, Visit Beloit, Greater Beloit Chamber of Commerce, the Hedberg Public Library in Janesville and Austin's Barber shop.
