LIFE President's Welcome Letter
Welcome Back to the ‘WE’ Generation!
Having collected in desultory fashion the outpourings of numerous past presidents, I admit to never having seen it done better than Dr. Malkasian’s cover letter. With minor modification, here is what he wrote, beginning with a quote from Abraham Lincoln: “I do not think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday”.
Wouldn’t we all like to be thought well of for that reason? Many of us have attended graduations, and heard speeches that implore new graduates your “follow your dreams”, “set new goals in life”, “make new friends”, “explore new avenues”, “make time to look at expand-ing your horizons”, etc. As you think about it, these things apply to us seniors as well. Current reports about healthy living suggest we need to do fulfilling things today, get involved today, but at the same time, think and plan for satisfying activities into the future. The LIFE Board and the faculty have worked diligently to improve the quality of the programs as well as expand offerings into ever-new areas. The Program Committee has put together the most in-clusive Winter program ever. Come join us this trimester. Make friends, learn new things, and contribute to our discussions. Make Mr. Lincoln think well of you for being smarter to-day than you were yesterday. See you in class!
Thank you to Judy Pease and Pauline Walle for their years of service on the LIFE Board!
Tom Gaffey, LIFE President
