February 02, 2016

CENTER VALLEY, Pa. — Senior Adults Gaining Enrichment (SAGE), an outreach program of Penn State Lehigh Valley for adults age 55 and older, has announced the schedule for its spring 2016 four-part lecture series.

Each SAGE session is held on a Friday and begins with coffee at 10:30 a.m., followed by the featured speaker at 11 a.m. and lunch at noon. All SAGE lectures are held in Room 135 at Penn State Lehigh Valley, located at 2809 Saucon Valley Road in Center Valley.

The spring series, titled "Turning Points: People, Ideas, Events," will focus on ideas, events or actions that directly, and sometimes indirectly, caused dramatic change. Attendees will travel through the arts, a hilly piece of land in Flicksville, and the human mind to explore and celebrate some "aha moments" that changed perspectives and inspired innovations.
