Lifelong Learning Expo coming to Rogers

By: 10 July 2011 No Comment

Learning isn’t just something we do in school, nor is it something we do only as a child. The Lifelong Learning Center of Northwest Arkansas is dedicated to the idea that people of all ages can learn and the act of learning helps keep people young.

The center, which opened in Bentonville earlier this year, offers a wide variety of enrichment courses for adults. LLCNWA is also hosting a Lifelong Learning and Activity Expo July 16 and July 17 at the John Q. Hammons Center in Rogers.

“Henry Ford once said that ‘anyone who stops learning is old, whether at 20 or 80. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young,’” the center quotes in its latest press release.

“Many in Northwest Arkansas don’t know where to go to follow Ford’s advice,” the press release continues.

The expo will be 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. July 16 and noon to 5 p.m. July 17. There will be a large number of interactive exhibits that show attendees just what’s available in the region for finding knowledge, adventure, social networking and self-improvement. There will be break-out sessions and the opportunity to sign up for classes offered at the center.

“People will be energized by what they discover at the expo,” said Jeff Foy, one of the event organizers. “They will have answered the question, ‘what is there to do in Northwest Arkansas? They’ll have an idea about how to step away from their computers and televisions and do something really exciting.”

There will be events, activities and projects for learners of all ages including children and adults.
