Senior Symposia is a collaboration between Greenfield Community College and area seniors to provide a way to learn in retirement in a format that best suits their unique needs. The Town of Greenfield is joining this partnership by providing the new Senior Center, which opened last March in the John Zon Community Center, as the symposia’s new home. The bright, welcoming space provides a modern and convenient learning environment for seniors, with an updated sound system, plenty of parking, and easy accessibility.
“This is a true partnership between the Town and the College,” says Mark Rabinsky, GCC’s Director of Workforce Development and Community Education. “Council on Aging Director and GCC alum Hope Macary ’97 has been great to work with, and we couldn’t be happier to be there. The seniors have always brought an amazing level of enthusiasm for learning. It’s really every educator’s dream to have such passionate and engaged learners in the classroom.”
The next symposia season kicks off on in February and will cover a range of topics from history, science, politics, architecture, and current events.
