Academy for Seniors

Oak Park Arms

Oak Park Arms Senior AcademyThe Oak Park Arms proudly announces the inaugural classes of its new Academy for Seniors. Lecture facilitators will share thoughts, experience and insights on a wide variety of topics. All sessions are free and take place at the Oak Park Arms.

“We are proud to offer our very first Academy for Seniors,” said Moses Williams, executive director of the Oak Park Arms. “With careful planning, we are offering an entire year’s worth of highly interesting sessions, and we invite the community to participate.”

The first three classes are:

  • A Guide to Essential Italy 11 a.m. Mondays
  • The Wisdom of History 7 p.m. Wednesdays
  • Great Mythologies of the World 2 p.m. Every other Saturday

Each class runs one hour. Materials are presented followed by lively discussion.

More than a year ago, Williams conceived a new activity at the Oak Park Arms called the “Philosophers Roundtable.” It was enormously successful, and participants asked for more.

“Their thirst for knowledge was so compelling,” Williams said. “I started thinking about offering other topics. Brainstorming with other staff members and a year’s worth of planning led to the Academy for Seniors. We’re very proud, and hope many older adults will join us.”

The Academy for Seniors is free and open to older adults, age 55 and up. Reservations are requested. For more information call 708-386-4040.
