LIFE President's Welcome Letter
Welcome Back to the ‘WE’ Generation!
The nocturnal sound of bush crickets’ chirping will soon signal students’ return to school, and the start of LIFE Fall classes. Thank you, our members, for benefitting LIFE through your subscription, attendance and support.
During the Summer, our program committee recruited this Fall trimester’s outstanding teachers, a roster loaded with authors, journalists and lecturers. Extolling brevity for adult learners, the class selections tilt toward liberal arts topics. About Minnesota, there are eight classes and six regional trips, including a popular “Lunch & Lock” cruise in September. The program’s warp and woof includes historical subjects, current events and environmental topics.
While concluding a term as President, I enthusiastically welcome new Board members and gratefully acknowledge the services of an emeritus group, six people : Bill Bakken, Corene Bernatz, Carolyn Chaapel, Ramona Digre, Kay Fockler and Steve Troutman. On your calendars, please mark opening day, Wednesday, September 7, for attending the Fall movie, Angela Lunde presentation, and the ice cream social.
AND, after that, See You In Class!
Tom Gaffey, LIFE President
