For Our LIR Friends

We are both active in LIR (Learning in Retirement at Nicolet College). This webpage was created to provide extra information easily for our friends.

It was announced at the Fall Kick-Off that the Holiday Brunch will be on Thursday, December 11 (not Dec 4 as shown on the back cover of the Fall Curriculum Guide).

Photography with Bill Radant (Sept 22, 9:30am) has been cancelled.

TED Talks (at Oneida Senior Center) has had a change of dates. Cancel Sept. 23 & Nov. 4. The four dates are now: Sept. 16, Nov. 11, Nov. 25, and Dec. 2. Time is still 1:30pm to 3:30pm.

LIR Class Calendar

The Time and Class Name are shown for each class. If you click on the class name, additional information is displayed (Day of Week, Date, Start & Stop Time, Location name, map to Location, Host Name & Phone Number).

Some members report that they cannot access the calendar in Google. Here is a link to 4 calendar pages in PDF format.

I have written driving directions for the different venues on page 2 of the Curriculum Guide. On the Google calendar, there is a link for Map. Many of the maps are in color. If you see an error on any of the maps, send me an email, and I will try to correct the description/address of the location.
