LIFE President's Welcome Letter

Welcome Back to the ‘WE’ Generation!

Image of LIFE (Learning is ForEver) PresidentThis academic year the LIFE program is 25 years old, and that is something to cheer about. Four celebrations are scheduled throughout the year to recognize this milestone. On September 6 we kick off the year with our fall film and ice cream social. Mary Doucette, the past director of Elder Network, will update us on the activities of this important organization. October 25 is our gala 25th anni-versary dinner with explorer Will Steger. You should have already heard about this, so make sure you buy a ticket. Special rates for LIFE members!

April 11, 2018 is the “Spring Fling” with Minnesota author Douglas Wood whose book Old Turtle is one of the best children’s books written for adults too. Be sure to attend this party (it is rumored there will be chocolate). June 7 will wrap up the anniversary celebration with a “Sock Hop.” You won’t have to dance in your socks (unless you want to), but the music and the fifties diner-food surely will bring back memories.

On another note, some of you choose to register on the day of a class rather than in advance. Please remember you must register in the LIFE office before the class starts. One drawback when a class is cancelled, same-day-sign-up par-ticipants will not know that. Registered participants are notified in advance of a cancellation. If you aren’t registered, you will miss this notice and make an unnecessary trip to school. Something to keep in mind as we begin the new year.

This is my last letter to you – my term as president is over and new kids on the block will take over (see list below). It has been a privi-lege to lead the advisory board of incredibly talented members who make up the team along with our talented Director, Chris-anne Pieper. Happy Anniversary to all of you who so generously support this program.

Pixy Russell, LIFE President
