Are you an adult who loves to travel, learning new things, exploring interesting places, and meeting people who share the love of adventure? Then you’ll want to come and learn about Road Scholar, America’s first, and the world’s largest, educational travel organization for adults.
Formerly known as Elderhostel, the not-for-profit world leader in lifelong learning since 1975, Road Scholar’s mission is to inspire adults to learn, discover, and travel. Programs offer lifelong learning and once-in-a-lifetime experiences delivered by local and world-renowned experts. Each year, 100,000 individuals participate in more than 5,500 programs in all 50 states and 150 countries worldwide. Whether you enjoy hiking through the Grand Canyon, birding in Costa Rica, or learning about the Low Country in the Southeast USA—there really is a something for everyone.
Our speaker will be Ron Sherman, a volunteer ambassador and Macedon community member, who will give us a presentation with information about the educational travel adventures available through Road Scholar. He and his wife, Marie (Chick) Sherman, have participated in 12 Road Scholar programs that have ranged from working on a float in the Rose Bowl Parade to a multi-sport adventure in Costa Rica. They will highlight two unique, inter-generational programs designed for grandparents and grandchildren that allow them to enjoy learning adventures together.
