For more than ten years, the Lifelong Learning Academy has offered a free public service for senior citizens with curious minds. The group meets informally twice a month for lectures and films in the Wellness Café at SpiriTrust just north of Gettysburg on the Old Harrisburg Road. Continuing its series of enlightening presentations, the Lifelong Learning Academy will present two speakers this month.
On Friday, April 14, Kay Hollabaugh will share her experience of “Operating an Agricultural Business in Trying Times” at 2 PM. Well known to the local community, she is the Co-Owner of Hollabaugh Brothers and Corporate Treasurer. Her talk will reflect the obstacles faced by the fruit industry in recent years with the pandemic, labor issues, and changes in public expectations. Discussion and light refreshments will follow her talk.
Two weeks later, on Friday, April 28, John Ricca will address the Lifelong Learning group on “The War in Ukraine and the Russian Tactical Weapons Threat” at 2 PM in the SpiriTrust Wellness Café. He served 54 years working for the federal government as a weapons of mass destruction (WMD) analyst, including 22 years on active duty in the US Army. His presentation will be followed by discussion and light refreshments.
No registration is required, but those attending are requested to check in at the SpiriTrust front desk upon arrival. For more information, contact Nicole Richwine at 717-334-6204.
