BWE - About LIFE

August 2022

LIFE is 30! The LIFE program has provided quality adult education for over 30 years. Now, as we approach fall, it’s time to think about going back to school. You’ll find that the classes being offered in 9/and 10/cover a wide range of topics and presenters. I’m sure that many of you will find it easy to select several classes that will meet your interests. Most classes are delivered via ZOOM. So you can attend without needing to travel to a classroom location and you can attend from any location. In addition, you never need to take a test! I would like to call special attention to the Harvest Dinner that will be held in October. We are privileged to have John Anfinson presenting "The Long Adventure of the Great Mississippi River." Prior to his retirement from the National Park Service, John was the Superintendent of the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area. His expertise will provide an excellent picture of the Mississippi River’s history. As a reminder, all classes and the Harvest Dinner are available at a discount to members of LIFE.  The cost of an annual membership is easily recovered over the course of the year of enrollments. I hope to ‘see’ many of you at several classes.
