The Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning (CLL) at Hodges University will begin its summer 2012 offerings by hosting a free lecture on the rise and tragic fall of the ancient city of Pompeii. The lecture will be held at
the Barrington Terrace Learning Center, 5175 Tamiami Trail East, in Naples on Monday, June 18 from 1:00 pm to 2:30pm.
This class will look at how the excavations at Pompeii and surrounding cities buried by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D. provide us an extraordinary glimpse of what life was like when Rome ruled the world.

She has served on the CLL Advisory Board since its inception.
