Exploring New Concepts of Retirement Education    


ENCORE is a member-run organization for individuals who are 50+ years in age. We operate under the auspices of Clatsop Community College to offer short-term courses and activities, which are usually led by members. Membership is inexpensive and most acvities are offered at no charge.

Coming Events!

ENCORE Annual Member Meeting

The Annual Member meeting will be June 3, 2 pm - 4 pm in room 219 Columbia Hall at Clatsop Community College. From 15th Street turn east onto Lexington Ave near the top of the hill on the north side of town, and from there into the main parking lot for the college. Room 219 is on the level of that parking lot. The view from the room is wonderful!

We will have a business meeting, recognition of several members, and a presentation from Kjirsten Severson. Plus lots of time to visit with your friends and perhaps make some new ones. And DESSERT! Don't miss it!

Lunch Bunch

The next Lunch Bunch will be July 1, the first friday in July, since the Annual Member Meeting is June 3, the first Friday in June. Lunch Bunch is every first Friday at a restaurant that is different each month. We always have a short program with our lunches. Come and enjoy the ambiance, the information, the good food, and the camaraderie!

Plan to come anytime from noon to 12:30, and order when you choose. That gives those of us who are attending the truly excellent Friday morning lectures time to get to the restaurant after class!

The Spring Class summary list

is available from the class page. Spring quarter classes are March 28 - May 20. Preregistration is not necessary, except for the cooking classs and the spring Field trip. If you are a member, just come. If you are not a member but think that you might want to become one, just come! You may attend two classes as a guest before becoming a member.

  • Live opera telecasts in Portland;
  • Portland Art Museum and Oregon Historical Society Museum;
