A Message from Our President

There’s an old country/bluegrass song that starts, “At my door, the leaves are falling, the cold, cold wind will come” which sums up the weather today as I write this message. My one tree has dropped almost all her star-shaped, sweetgum leaves, and the wind is blustery as the weatherman likes to say. However, those of us living on Cape Cod are not deterred by the seasonal change. We will continue to do what we do despite having to don winter coats, gloves, and hats as well as keep an ice scraper and maybe even a shovel in our vehicles. Ah, but if winter is approaching, can spring be far behind? Yes! And our second semester post COVID shutdown will begin the end of January and end in April. Our curriculum committee has been busy approving classes for the spring semester, the catalog with be out on our website in December, registration will be held in January, and before we know it, the Spring Semester will begin! Not only will we offer in-person classes at the college, and zoom on the computer, but we will also offer hybrid courses which allow members who are in class to interact with others who will be on Zoom and both will be able to see and hear with each other via new technology. We are very excited to offer this new platform for classes!

So, we will continue to do what we do: take classes, attend special and hospitality events, spend time with our ALL friends, and spread the word about the wonderful program known as Academy for Life Long Learning. If you are checking out this website for the first time, come back in December to see what we have to offer in the spring catalog and take a class or two with us; you’ll be glad you did!

Dianne Tattersall, ALL President
