Lifelong Learning Opportunities at Hartman Center

GlassesA new set of lenses are needed when looking at programs offered at Hartman Center.  It’s time to put on bifocals and not just see Hartman Center as a place for children and youth.  We want you to see the possibilities of year round programs for adults as well.    If you have any questions about the Lifelong Learning Opportunities  in this brochure or suggestions for future events contact Dave Bushnell at  abushnell@aol.com  or 717-371-2593.
