Come, join us to meet new folks, have fun and stimulate the grey matter.

Welcome to BRCLL,
Blue Ridge Center for Lifelong Learning
take a look at the activities for the Spring of 2019

Thank you for visiting our website.  If you are interested in strengthening your mind, expanding your knowledge, learning about your community, making new friends and staying active the Blue Ridge Center of Lifelong Learning will be of interest to you.  We are an organization within the Blue Ridge Community College that caters to the interests of older adults in the area of Henderson County, NC. Read a message from Dr. Laura Leatherwood, the president of the college.

The BRCLL volunteers have arranged for the following activities, many of which will interest you:

  • Courses - eleven classes are scheduled this spring on subjects from emotions to North Korea. They range from one to three sessions and meet during the day and the college.
  • EdVentures (Educational Adventures) - a couple of years ago we visited the Dark Corners and had a waiting list for the trip so we have planned another excursion there. We are also going on the Global Culinary Tour again because of popular demand. In addition we will be visiting the Cathedral of All Souls in Biltmore Village. Those who like to plan ahead should check into our Barns of Madison County EdVenture which occur in May; the cutoff date to sign up is April 19, 2019.
  • Industry Tours - sign up quickly for our popular tours of local industries. This spring we are going to the Reumedic Medical Facility and the Sunburst Trout Farm, in the summer we will visit the water and waste water facilities in Hendersonville.
  • Brown Bag Lunches - enjoy interesting discussions while you have lunch; you supply the lunch and we provide the speaker.
  • Great Decisions - every spring we host the series of Great Decisions lectures (America's largest discussion program on world affairs). These lectures will be held in February and March at the college. Don't miss the series.
