President’s Letter, Winter/Spring 2016

We at ALL hope you had a wonderful holiday season, celebrating family, friends, and faith. You will note that we have combined what were formerly two distinct semesters into one, primarily for ease in planning, scheduling and executing another great program of courses.

Some new offerings include, “Mind-Blowing Images from the Hubble Space Telescope.” This one is a “can’t miss” exposure to some of the most exciting photos of the last two decades. Another new entry, “From Script to Screen,” is a fascinating five-part look at the process of going from a script to the finished movie product, led by two experts. Other highlights include courses in math, Shakespeare, photography, Facebook, local wildlife species, personal development and business ethics. We also have a splendid array of Meet the Author offerings, field trips and lectures.

All together, this a fabulously rich assortment of course offerings. Give yourself a gift by signing up for one or more of ALL’s exciting courses.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year,

Bob Lonergan

P.S. Please join us at our Winter/Spring Preview Party at 4pm on Thursday, January 21, 2016 at the Van Lennep Auditorium on CBMM’s campus, where you can meet the course leaders and find out more about our upcoming semester.
