Summer Lectures Club - 2018 Summer Lectures Club is a non-profit, independent organization operated by a group of volunteers who arrange an eclectic mix of lectures by people from all walks of life. The club is for primarily for seniors (but all are welcome) who are interested in life-long learning and who would like to attend lectures over the spring and summer months, between March and early August. Spring and Summer are seasons for exercising our bodies - why not exercise our minds too with these stimulating lectures.
