Event Date

Tuesday, August 6
1:30 - 3:30 pm

August 6 | 1:30 - 3:30 pm | Hostetter Enrichment Center, Messiah Village

Please join us for the Pathways Institute Fall 2019 kick-off reception to welcome the next term of lifelong learning opportunities! 

The event format will be a “come & go” open house with an expo style set-up. During this time, fall instructors will be stationed around the Hostetter Enrichment Center and into the adjoining Lesher Atrium. Please feel welcome to attend anytime between 1:30 and 3:30 pm, meet instructors, and visit the table displays. We anticipate that many instructors will bring “props” or other visual cues to help pique excitement for their courses! 

You may pick up your Pathways Institute fall catalog, enjoy light snacks, and mingle with fellow learners at your own pace. Course registration will begin on Thursday, August 8 by 9:00 am in order to give everyone ample time to make their course selections.

Please RSVP to Ms. Sharon Blouch at 717.591.7213 (ext. #2) or email by July 25. If unable to attend, a catalog can be sent to you or you can visit and access the new fall 2019 catalog immediately following the reception.

Parking is available in the guest parking lot just off the main entrance to your right, across from Village Square. Overflow parking will be available across from the Village Commons building. For convenience, Messiah Village campus shuttle service will be available to take guests to and from Village Commons and Village Square between 1:00 and 4:00 pm.

Please join us for this wonderful occasion and invite your friends. It’s our pleasure to host new Pathways friends.
