Lectures | Discussions

We should learn something new every day. Beacon Hill Village members have multiple opportunities to participate in educational lectures, author readings and discussions which are offered throughout the month. Our educational programs are ever-changing and always stimulating.

And, of course, our members are continually learning from each other through the shared wisdom and experience of members at informal coffees, meal sharing and other social events. Affinity Groups are an informal way for members to explore and share information about a specific topic of interest.

There is a charge for some events or programs and some are even free.
