For over 20 years the SAGE Society has stressed the fact that people are never too old to learn. Members in their 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s are quite mentally alert and have stretched their minds by participating in study groups exploring all facets of literature, science, history, politics, culture, music, art, religion, and current events.

With this SAGE Society Blog we are embarking on a new learning adventure involving a new form of communication. In other words, we oldsters want to keep up with what’s new.  We don’t want to be left behind. Almost all of our 150 members are on the internet and have email addresses.

When SAGE took its initial formative steps to become a learning-in-retirement organization in 1987, there were no blogs. That didn’t happen until the 1990’s. Now we want to be part of the action by sharing our wealth of experience and information with each other and the world.

One form of communication we currently possess is our organization’s website at http://exlweb.csun.edu/sage that gives a comprehensive picture of SAGE and its activities.

The website features a pdf version of SAGE Observations, our quarterly publication printed and distributed to all the members and other learning-in-retirement  organizations.

In the coming weeks, months, and years we hope to fill our blog with
•    Comments by members about their experiences at SAGE
•    Reflections and views about any current issue
•    Reviews of books, movies, plays, and other events they would like to share with fellow members and the world
•    Pictures of SAGE members and their activities

We’re never too old to learn!
