  • REGISTRATIONS FOR PVSC FALL CLASSES HAVE ENDED. A big thank you to all our fabulous instructors!

    Classes will be held on Zoom, and zoom link will be sent 2 days prior to the first class, and weekly reminders the morning of each class.
    Registration for PVSC 2020-2021 membership continues if you have not yet renewed. Membership is still $25 for single member, or .$40 for two people at the same address. You will need a current membership to attend any of our free one-day zoom events, as well as being able to register for classes at another Maine senior college. Stay tuned for future One-Day offerings.

    Did you know that if you have a membership in another senior college (there are 17 in Maine), you may take PVSC classes without paying additional membership fees?
    At this time, you cannot register online, since our software requires a PVSC membership to register for a class. 
    Call Sheila at 207-659-1359 to register, and she will adjust the registration so you aren't charged for additional membership. Or, you can always mail a check made out to PVSC and mail it to: 
    499 Broadway PMB #274
    Bangor, ME 04401
    It's a good idea to call first. Classes are $30 each, but one-day events are no charge.
