LIFELONG LEARNING at NSC

 Herding Honeybees
 Tuesdays: 1/6 – 1/27, 11am to 12:30pm, Lee Alley, $80 nonmember/$40 member, Room 105
Even a small corporate department has a difficult time managing the communications, cooperation and collaboration among co-workers. So, how does a honeybee colony with no communications net-work, no job descriptions, and no management structure coordinate a community of 60,000 workers in the diverse daily chores of housekeeping, grocery shopping, child rearing, meal planning and home maintenance? Dr. Alley is a social scientist, but he was educated as a physicist, mathematician, computer scientist, and engineer. He keeps honeybees, trains pack goats, studies the vocalization of chickens, and seeks new things to learn from others.

 Tell Your Own Story (advanced)
 Wednesdays: 1/7 – 2/25, 11am to 12:30pm,, Gloria Campbell, $75, Room 105
 If you have already started writing your life story or memoir, this class will show you how to complete the draft and turn it into something you will feel proud to share.

 Tell Your Own Story (beginning)
 Thursdays: 1/15 – 3/5, 11am to 12:30pm,, Gloria Campbell. $150 nonmember/$75 member, Room 105
Your story is one of the most important gifts you can pass on to your family and friends. Afraid to get started? In this class you will learn how to find and write about key points in your life that you want to share. You will gain valuable insights into your experience and enjoy the process as you recre-ate the story. Gloria Campbell has helped scores of writers do exactly that.

 Gods and Heroes of the North
 Thursdays: 1/8 – 2/26, 1pm to 2:30pm, Marianne LoGerfo, FREE, Room 205.
As vibrant and magical as their Greek counterparts, the old Norse gods and heroes pursue lives of high adventure, low comedy and enduring significance. We'll read their stories in the prose and poetry preserved from the Viking Age, view their depiction in art, and ponder their meaning for their time and ours. As a special treat, we'll enjoy a guest presentation on the transformation of some of these original tales into Wagner's magnificent cycle of operas. A course book will be available on the first day of class. Marianne LoGerfo was Director of the Northshore Senior Center for 22 years. She is now an instructor for the Lifetime Learning Center in Seattle and has continued to teach classes at NSC. Her classes cover a wide range of interests and stu-dents find them enjoyable and fun.

LEARNING IS LOTS OF FUN, AND IT’S GOOD FOR US, TOO!
