Treat Yourself at AACC's College-4-A Day Seminars

Jan. 4, 2010

            Dive into the history, heritage and legacy of the Chesapeake Bay through the first of three spring College 4-A Day seminars offered at Anne Arundel Community College.

            Spend a Saturday with other lifelong learners and enjoy a fun, stressfree and testfree atmosphere. Participants get lunch and a T-shirt, too.

            Bay lovers can immerse themselves in their favorite topic on Jan. 30 by joining “Chesapeake Bay 101: History, Heritage and Legacy” (CFD 308), which is offered in partnership with the Annapolis Maritime Museum. Hear from a bevy of outstanding presenters. Learn about the Chesapeake’s maritime heritage from the colonial era to the Civil War period from maritime historian William “Bill” Dudley, Ph.D., who is chairman emeritus of the Navy Historical Foundation. Ken Upton of Ken’s Creative Kitchen in Annapolis will heat up the morning with a Chesapeake culinary demonstration followed by lunch. The deadline to register is Jan. 25.

            Spend the afternoon with two speakers: Allison Blake, author of “The Chesapeake Bay Book,” will captivate you with “Chesapeake Curiousities and Lore” followed by an eye-opening talk from Jeff Popp of Terrapins on the Rise. Popp will wrap up the day with a discussion on “The Diamondback Terrapin in Maryland: The Truth Behind our Mascot.”

            Two other spring College 4-A Day sessions are:

  • Feb. 20 – Namaste India (CFD 307) – Explore the fun facts and history of the world’s most populated democracy. Enjoy presentations on Indian history, art, architecture, education, lifestyle, clothing, religion and savor Indian fare for lunch.
  • March 6 – Forever Young: Secrets to a Long and Vital Life (COA 350) – Discover the secrets of long life from the world’s healthiest humans, find out how to create happiness and purpose in your life, explore and sample foods that fight aging and focus on stress management to stop the acceleration of the aging process.

            Each seminar costs $79 and meets from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. on AACC’s Arnold campus, 101 College Parkway. Advance registration is required. For information and to register, visit or call 410-777-2325.
