The SLL fall term begins October 16 and will offer over 25 classes and four Food For Thought events.
Ehresman stated that SLL volunteer have been hard at work developing two new initiatives this year, as well.
“We will encourage members to establish Interest Groups which will gather members with similar interests in a specific subject or hobby together,” said Ehresman. “We will also offer an exciting series of programs called An Evening With . . .”
According to Ehresman, the series will feature prominent thought leaders who, through a moderator-led interview, will provide insight into their thoughts on modern events and issues. The first will be held Wednesday, October 11 and will feature Chief Justice John D. Minton, Jr.
