Celebrating 26 years of SALT! See general SALT information below:

Going into the 26th year, Seniors Learning Together, Inc., a non-profit organization, is offering enrichment learning to people over 55.  Sponsored by a coalition of 13 churches in Dakota County, the program is, however, open to people of ALL ages! Sessions are held on 4 consecutive Mondays every Spring and Fall. Our goal is to appeal to a broad spectrum of interests with 4 presentations on various subjects scheduled each day (2 speakers each hour). Participants choose one session to attend each hour. The first hour begins at 9:30 a.m. There is a 30 minute refreshment break between the first and second hour.

Give SALT a try, because . . . 

SALT is a wonderful program of enrichment learning made fun!  Our life enrichment presentations are offered to you in an enjoyable format.  There are no questions to answer or tests to take, but merely an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the world around us.

Call Marianne Brass at (952) 698-1714 or e-mail if you have questions regarding the SALT program.

“Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.” Colossians 4:6
