"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind" and "You shall love your neighbour as yourself"
The purpose of the College program is to inform, entertain, and inspire. A broad curriculum of subjects is offered to serve the interests and needs of its students. All courses are taught by highly qualified instructors drawn primarily from the local community. Along with our educational programs, we also offer stimulating trips and tours.
By offering non-credit courses, students benefit from the stimulus of lectures and discussions in an informal and relaxed environment.
One of the largest and yet one of the best-kept secrets in this community is the Mary Petro Foundation.
Petro was a community resident who passed away in 2009 leaving behind a $2.3 million trust to help her less fortunate neighbors. This money is specifically earmarked for residents with limited income who have difficulty paying for food or medications.
Residents who qualify for the program can get up to $100 a month for food and $1,500 a year for medication.
