FREE TUITION RAFFLE
One more reason for coming to the Preview Meeting:
A raffle will be held for all attendees with the winner
receiving free tuition for the spring 2020 semester.
Will it be you? Who knows? But it's for sure
going to be someone else if you're not there.
As usual for special events, parking is available at the Chinese Baptist Church (previously the Beth Hillel Synagogue) adjacent to Seabury. Shuttle service between the church and Seabury's main entrance will be available starting at 8:30 AM.Please park in the rear of the church's parking lot to minimize any inconvenience to people visiting the church.
We've added a new page to our website for those of you who may have missed or are interested in a specific class. The page contains links to written reviews and audio recordings of classes already held. See "Class Reviews and Recordings" in the CLASSES drop down menu or just click here.
SEABURY PARKING FOR CLASSES
Seabury is pleased to offer parking for all ALP classes at the convenient Hilltop Parking Lot at the north end of our campus (near the raised garden beds and pickleball court). After parking, ALP members may enter the door with the large awning across the parking lot where there will be signs to direct you to your classrooms. Park in unnumbered spaces only.
For special events like the preview meetings or annual meeting, we will continue to provide shuttle service to Seabury's Main Entrance from the parking lot at the Chinese Baptist Church adjacent to Seabury.
If you have a temporary or permanent disability that makes it difficult for you to get to your class from the Hilltop parking lot, use the parking lot by the new chapel on your right as you enter Seabury. Then take the short walk to the main entrance. Valet parking is no longer available.
There is NO PARKING along the curb across from the main entrance. You will be ticketed!
We could use more help. If you would like to "give something back" to our Adult Learning Program in return for all that you've received (or are about to receive), please let an ALP board member know! At your next ALP session, let the registrar know that you are interested, and someone will get in touch to see how you can be of service.
