Texarkana College’s Sage Programs Offers Enrichment Programs for Citizens in “Third Stage” of Life- Age 46 and Up
July 27, 2017- Texarkana, TX– Texarkana College’s Sage Program will hold its annual Open House on Monday, August 14, 2017, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in Room 13 of the Social Sciences Building on the TC campus, 2500 N. Robison Rd., Texarkana, TX. TC’s Sage program engages citizens in the “third stage” of life in thoughtful discussion and stimulating activities to enrich their day-to-day living. Sage programming primarily benefits mature adults who are age 46 and up and who are seeking a like-minded community.
Dr. Beverly Rowe, professor of history at Texarkana College and notable author on Texarkana history, serves as a host for the Sage program. Along with a group of engaged community leaders, Rowe designed the program as a catalyst for seasoned adults to remain active in the community and network with others of similar interests.
“The mission of Sage is to provide opportunities to exercise collective wisdom with others who claim the same reference points throughout their lives and who are interested in traveling, discussing, getting together, and having a lot of fun,” Rowe said. “This fall, we have an extensive line up of programs for participants including classes on topics that spark curiosity as well as travel and dining outings that foster fellowship and new friendships.”
