Third Age Barrie - Life Long Learning Association - Learning is ageless…and so are you!!! Whether you are 50 or 95, we hope that learning for the sake of learning inspires you! Research has shown that people who continue to learn new things well into their retirement are healthier and happier than those who don’t. That’s the philosophy behind Third Age Barrie, known by most of us as TAB. We are a group of retirees just like you who are excited about life, learning and the opportunity to be vibrant contributors to society!
