New ILR Sampler Program

Joan Elder, ILR Vice Chairperson

The Institute for Learning in Retirement (ILR) is thrilled to announce a new program, Samplers, open to all SaddleBrooke residents. These one-hour classes will take place on five consecutive Thursdays at 1:30 p.m. on Zoom. You can attend as many of these free classes as you wish. All registered ILR members will receive an email with the Zoom link, but non-members can find the link by going to the ILR website,, where there will be an article titled Samplers. Most of these presentations are previews of classes that will be taught in the coming academic year. I also invite anyone who has never taught for the ILR, and would like to test the water by presenting a Sampler, to contact me at [email protected] Hope you all participate and enjoy the Samplers!
