LEWISTON — The Senior College program at USM/Lewiston-Auburn held its annual recognition dinner for the course instructors of the 2009 spring and fall semesters on Oct. 1 in the college’s Function Room.

The dinner and entertainment was planned by Grace Keene and Liette Morin, co-chairwomen of the special events committee, and was also attended by the Senior College board of directors.

Board Chairman Hugh Keene thanked the volunteer instructors with personalized remarks. Lewiston-Auburn College’s Associate Dean Blake Whitaker related how important life-long learning was to his family and emphasized the administration’s pleasure in the success of Senior College.

Providing musical entertainment at the event were singer Anne Caldwell and accompanist Robert Caldwell. The couple, both former
students at the New England Conservatory of Music, performed classical and semi-classical art songs, as well as selections from the Broadway theatre. Both musicians are known to the community for their work at St. Patrick’s Church and the United Baptist Church.

The Senior College program provides courses for adult learners age 50 and over, as well as the monthly “Food for Thought” luncheon series. The fall semester is currently underway, and the spring semester will begin in March 2010. For additional information about Senior College, call 753-6610.
