Never Too Late

The Never Too Late Group is one of the country’s oldest, continuously running groups for seniors. For over 60 years,
it has provided a setting for seniors to gather together and enjoy with their friends a wide variety of unique programs that are entertaining and culturally enriching. Programs are always held year round in the Rabb Lecture Hall on Thursdays at 2:00 pm. A typical month consists of classic and contemporary films, live musical performances, and author or lecture talks about various topics, especially on Boston or Massachusetts history.

To stay on top of the latest programs, please subscribe to the Never Too Late mailing list.
