Lakehead University making holiday gift giving less complicated

December 14, 2020 – Orillia, Ont.

Feeling hard-pressed to find that perfect gift? There are no partridges in pear trees, but if you or someone on your list is into lifelong learning, we might just have the gift for you to give.

Lakehead University’s Office of Community Engagement and Lifelong Learning has curated a set of unique online workshops for the 12 Days (or is it ways?) of Learning. From grilling the perfect steak with The Common Stove, to discovering new authors with Manticore Books, we have a unique workshop for everyone on your list – friend, family member, teacher, colleague, or even yourself.

The best part is that many of the workshops offer the opportunity to support a local business.

Check out all 12 workshops on our website at Workshops begin in the new year. Happy gifting!
