ALP FALL SOCIAL WELL-ATTENDED
On Thursday, October 21st, ALP members gathered on Zoom to socialize, having been unable to do so for quite some time because of Covid-19 restrictions. Still unable to gather in person, members tuned in and were inspired by the many stories shared by many of our members. Flo Grieb and Ann Winship told of ALP's beginnings and the vision that has allowed each of us to enjoy our ALP membership today! Members shared their impactful learning experiences which were heartfelt, humorous, personal and inspiring! Thank you to those members who joined us and were so willing to share! It was certainly a celebration of life-long learning and was quite an enlightening and thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.
FALL SEMESTER CONTINUES!!
We are in the midst of our Fall Semester and it is not too late to join us! Please feel free to come and sample a class or to sign up for the remainder of the semester. Peruse ALP's Fall Semester: Single Session Classes and Multi-session Classes. You may register online here at any time, as soon as you have selected the courses you wish to take. The semester began on Wednesday, September 22nd and will continue through December 17th.
All classes will take place on Zoom. Once you have registered, you will be sent a link to each of those classes in order to participate. If you need a refresher about using Zoom, please click here.
As Kim Hunt, our Curriculum Committee co-chair states, "Twenty-five presentations will, amidst other matters, decipher Artificial Intelligence; steep in Beethoven’s revolutionary explorations of emotion; weep in appreciation for a family’s heroic and unflagging search to provide for their child in remediating Progeria; marvel at the efforts of the Amazing Women in Connecticut’s history; confront Connecticut’s involvement in the Opium Trade; rest assured that our nation’s quest for a more perfect union was served through 19th Century Black Resistance while continuing to be served through the efforts of Connecticut’s Civil Liberties Union; and rollick and emotionally reload in a review of Comedy, Comedians & Comics."
If you enjoy being a member of ALP, please consider using our Tell a Friend Flyer to invite your friends and acquaintances to join us. We are always eager to welcome new members.
