Seminar Series


SEMINARS are presented for Sandycove residents by the Home Owners Association.   These sessions were started in 2009 and have continued with successful seminars presented and a regular basis.   These are information sessions specifically focusing on the interests of Seniors and retired folks.   When scheduled they are normally held the 3rd Monday of the month at the SPOKE starting at 1:00pm and are generally well attended and generate a number of questions about our community and life style.   


These SEMINARS are presented for the members of the Home Owners Association and you are able to sign up at the Seminar where membership information is available.   Watch the monthly newsletters for current seminar information.   Plan now to attend these very informative sessions.
