Be Red Cross Ready for Seniors. For a complete listing of SAGE fall 2020 courses and a registration form, please visit msad1.coursestorm.com/.

A number of this year’s classes will be held on the computer through ZOOM.

Annual membership in SAGE is $25. Courses are $5 each for members, though some hands-on courses and activities have additional fees. 

For over two decades, SAGE has been bringing people, from age 50, together in a relaxed atmosphere to learn from instructors who are knowledgeable and engaged. Come join us for the joys of sharing in this life-long learning adventure!
