LifeVentures is new name for organization

East Wichita Shepherd's Center, founded in 1989 to provide educational enrichment opportunities for adults, has changed its name to LifeVentures.

The nonprofit organization offers classes, social events and other activities.

In a letter to participants and others, the organization said the name change and new logo did not indicate a change in programming but was meant to reflect the reach beyond east Wichita.
