Joint Venture Expands Lifelong Learning Opportunities for Local Seniors

Manor College Lecture Series at Wesley Enhanced Living
Increases Topics and Access to Free Educational Programs for Seniors

Hatboro, Pa., March 13, 2014 – Wesley Enhanced Living (WEL), a non-profit, faith-based organization that owns and manages multiple continuing care retirement communities in Bucks, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties, announces the expansion of its highly-popular Manor College Lecture Series at Wesley Enhanced Living.  The free, lifelong learning series now features lectures on the arts, culture, and history.  Residents of Wesley Enhanced Living’s continuing care retirement communities, as well as local seniors, are invited to attend.           

The Manor College Lecture Series at Wesley Enhanced Living kicked off this month with a series of history lectures at Wesley Enhanced Living Pennypack Park.  Featured topics include a discussion about the integral role music played in the Civil War, a journey into the history of Gettysburg, and an exploration of the top secret world of espionage and spying during America’s early days.   

Wesley Enhanced Living Doylestown will launch its senior education series in mid-March with a series of lectures focused on the arts and culture, followed by history lectures in April and May.  The lectures will explore the golden age of illustration and Norman Rockwell, French Impressionism of the nineteenth century, the music of the civil war, and the roles of women in the civil war.   

Wesley Enhanced Living at Stapeley , located in the northwest section of Philadelphia, will offer history-focused lectures in April, and arts and culture lectures in May.  

For the exact dates, times and locations of the lectures, or to register, please consult the events calendar on the Wesley Enhanced Living website located at or call 1-877-U-AGE-WEL.  

“Manor College is proud and honored to once again partner with Wesley Enhanced Living to offer their residents and local seniors our popular and highly-insightful Civil War, arts, culture and history lectures,” says Mitru Costea IV, Continuing Education Counselor at Manor College.  “Last year was marked by the success of our arts, music and culture programs at two Wesley Enhanced Living communities.  This year, we are looking forward to engaging, informing and inspiring even more seniors by offering more topics and greater access to the Manor College Lecture Series at Wesley Enhanced Living.”

“We are excited to announce the expansion of the lifelong learning opportunities we are offering to our communities’ residents and local seniors,” says Shelley Ballet, Vice President, Marketing and Sales.  “The Manor College Lecture Series at Wesley Enhanced Living gives us an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our residents and local seniors by offering free educational programs focused on the arts, culture, and history.”
