Welcome to Learning Is ForEver
Welcome to LIFE’s Winter Quarter 2014!
Activities at LIFE are swinging along on several fronts as we enter into another great set of class offerings this quarter—well done Program Committee! Next time in our regular classroom (HA112), please browse our own new LIFE Lending Library. You can either check out a quality book or donate some of your own books. Also note the “Items of Interest” bulletin board. Soon we will be hanging a large world map to assist in some of our classes. LIFE just negotiated, and now has completed its first quarter of an ongoing formal collaborative outreach program with the Sisters of St. Francis at Assisi Heights and at Madonna Towers. Two classes were presented in October and November — all with excellent attendance.
Many of us enjoyed the “Wine and Food Around the Globe” event on Nov. 7 at
Johnny Mango’s Cabernet, and an additional well-crafted social event is being
planned for April. These events are fun and engaging, and help our LIFE Program’s
revenue stream. On that note, while RCTC’s LIFE Program has been growing
robustly in membership and attendance, many colleges are experiencing decreased
enrollments, and as noted in recent newspaper articles, so has RCTC. One
of the measures being taken results in a small increase in LIFE class prices beginning
this quarter, and this is reflected in this Winter Catalog (An increase of 50
cents per hour for members, and by $1.50 per hour for non-members). While this
has been very painful for the LIFE Board, it was a required action. Class calendars
are available in Heintz Center Room HA112.
See you in class!
