September 28, 2017

ALLIANCE, Ohio—The Continued Learning Program (CLP) will begin its 25th year of programming this October.

A variety of programming and presentations, scheduled for each Tuesday in October, will begin at 10 a.m. in the Newbold Room of the Hoover-Price Campus Center (HPCC) on the University of Mount Union’s campus. The events are coordinated by Mount Union’s Regula Center for Public Service and Civic Engagement.

The first session, set for Tuesday, October 3, will feature Cleveland Metroparks’ staff marketing photographer Kyle Lanzer. His talk, “Capturing the Moment”, will discuss photographing the news and his 17-year experience as a photographer.

The second session will feature Char Lautzenheiser, museum director of the Canton Classic Car Museum, on Tuesday, October 10. The Canton Classic Car Museum was established by the late Marshall Belden, Sr. in 1978 and includes 40 rare and unusual classic and special interest automobiles.

Mandy Altimus Stahl, archivist of the Massillon Museum, will give an overview of World War I and discuss different aspects of war, including technology, propaganda and politics.

Finally, Dr. Keith Miller, assistant professor of chemistry and biochemistry at Mount Union, will close October’s programming with a Civil War-based discussion on October 24.

CLP is facilitated by a committee comprised of community members Michelle Dillon, Art and Gail Murdoch, Don and Jo VanFossen and Dave and Jan Puterbaugh. This committee selects the speakers and topics and aims to schedule a variety of subjects that are of interest in the Alliance community. 

All CLP sessions are free and open to the public. Questions and discussion will occur concluding each session. All are welcome to stay for an all-you-can-eat lunch for $7 after each session. For more information, contact Abby Honaker Schroeder at (330) 829-8168 or
