From President Larry A. Smith THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! . . . for making the previous year and the start of this year a wonderful success. Lifelong Learning Institute enjoyed the most participation in our programs and membership in our organization. Are we are going to rest on that performance? Of course not!!! I am really excited about the start of the 2016-17 year, with the introduction of our documentary series this past summer and new classes during October and November. And if you think that was good, just wait to see what the upcoming Winter-Spring program has to offer.
Get a “three package” of Special Events that will feature outstanding speakers, including Jeff Butera and John Patrick from ABC-7, John Hillman, executive vice president of Kitson and Partners, and David Dunn-Rankin from Sun Media Group. Get all three programs for a special price.
The curriculum committee has assembled another winning lineup of 33 classes, including David Morris who writes the weekly consumer column for the Charlotte Sun, and the Trips Committee continues to select great places to visit and learn.
The Board of Directors also wants to thank those of you who made this year’s Giving Partner Challenge an enormous success. The monies received from this effort makes it possible for us to continue to bring you speakers, trips, classes, and documentary films.
We are anticipating your participation in these programs. Our efforts are for you, and as usual, we hope you will find Lifelong Learning is – Just for the Fun of It!”
