Dateline The Quarterly Newsletter of the Gladstone 55+ Center COMMUNITY EDUCATION Gladstone 55+ Jan/Feb/Mar, 2018 VOLUME 39, NUMBER 3 Gladstone 55+ Center 1945 Manton St., Maplewood, MN 55109 651-748-7250 There are so many “Riesens” (pronounced reasons) to celebrate Community Education because there are so many Community Education programs. Community Education provides educational, social and recreational activities for all from birth to 100+. Thursday, November 9th was National Community Education Day. We celebrated by identifying the programs, of which Gladstone 55+ is one of, and then asking you to describe in one word, why you celebrate Community Education. The words you wrote included service, relationships, growth, learning, smiles, fun, and many more! These words show us what you value about Gladstone and celebrate the positive impact of Community Education in our community. Thanks for helping us celebrate!
