Moorhens Featured at ElderCollege Kickoff

Huron, Ohio – The kickoff of the ElderCollege spring semester is set for Wednesday, Feb. 8 from 1:30-3 p.m., in the Cedar Point Center at Bowling Green State University Firelands College.

The Kickoff event features live music by The Moorhens. Bringing together dulcimer, violin, fiddle, guitar, Irish whistle, recorders, and more, The Moorhens will rock your soul with Celtic folk and Old Time USA music. Toe-tapping sound will emanate from the stage with the band playing a variety of folk tunes from Appalachia to heartfelt Celtic ballads as we kick-off the spring semester of ElderCollege!

With more than 130 members, ElderCollege at BGSU Firelands is designed to promote lifelong learning for adults 50 years of age and beyond from all educational and socio-economic backgrounds.  There are no academic requirements to join ElderCollege, and there are no tests or grades. Individuals simply attend for the enjoyment of learning.

Thirty classes are planned for the spring. Topics range from America’s current challenges, to learning more about our local treasures and heroes, and much more!

Individuals can enroll in ElderCollege for a fee of $70 per semester or $110 for two semesters, which entitles them to attend unlimited classes during the selected period.  Non-members can participate by paying a minimal fee per class-typically $20.
