ILR winter class registration gets underway
The Institute for Learning in Retirement (ILR) ushers in the New Year with an exciting lineup of new classes designed specifically for SaddleBrooke residents. The courses cover a wide range of subjects and have something of interest for everyone. They offer an opportunity to delve deeper into areas of interest or to expose yourself to new fields of study.
Classes are taught by resident SaddleBrooke experts and are stress free. There are no papers to write and no exams to be taken. Information is shared and ideas exchanged in a relaxed, congenial atmosphere.
