In the early morning hours of April 7, more than 90 travelers, most from Northwest Ohio and some from as far away as California, met at Terra State Community College to begin a weeklong trip to the historic area of Savannah, Ga. sponsored by Terra State’s ElderCollege program.
While traveling by bus, the travelers were treated to snacks provided by the Valley View Healthcare Center of Fremont.
Once in Savannah, the group had tours of Parris, Jekyll and St. Simons islands, and the cities of Savannah and Beaufort. They visited historical sites that included River Street in Savannah, the Millionaires’ Club on Jekyll Island, and the birthplace of Girl Scouts founder, Juliette Gordon Low and many others.
Terra’s ElderCollege is open to the public for adults age 50 and beyond who share a common desire to learn. No previous college experience is necessary, just a desire to learn.
The course schedule varies from term to term but typically includes such topics as history, art and music. There are also several educational outing opportunities including the upcoming trip to the Biltmore in North Carolina this October, which is not limited to those 50 or older.
For more information on upcoming trips or class offerings, please call 419-559-2255.
Terra ElderCollege travelers enjoy plenty of Savannah smiles on a recent trip.
