MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. ? Seniors interested in learning about Africa will have a chance at a program Westchester Community College is bringing to the Mount Vernon Armory.

The program, given through the college's Institute for Mature Adults, will be taught by Bob Jalongo, a former Kenyan ambassador the United Nations, Europe and Africa. It will focus on the beauty, diversity and traditions of Africa.

"This is a wonderful opportunity for our seniors to continue their learning experience without having to travel to the college’s main campus,” said Geraldine Christiana, director of senior programs. "Immediately following the sessions, seniors can enjoy the daily lunches that are a part of the Armory’s nutrition program."

The Armory is located at 144 N. 5th Ave. The program begins Friday, Feb. 1, and runs for four consecutive Fridays until Feb. 22. Classes are from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.. For more information, call 914-665-2315.
