ILR members receive email notification of the new class schedule about a week before the schedule is announced to the community. This can be a real advantage since some of the classes fill up quickly.

What Does the ILR Do

The purpose of the ILR is to provide a broad range of educational opportunities for the residents of SaddleBrooke. No tests, no grades, no papers - just a group of people getting together to learn something new. ILR course leaders are SaddleBrooke residents who have knowledge or expertise in certain areas and a desire to share that knowledge with others. The ILR is member-driven and is dedicated to providing an environment that leads to lively discussion and interaction on topics of interest to its members.

The ILR offers two sessions of courses each year: one in the fall, and one in winter/spring. Courses usually last 5 or 6 weeks, depending on the topic, and meet once a week for 2 hours. This allows ample opportunity for discussion and interaction among the participants. The quality, scope and presentation of each course are directed by the ILR Board of Directors. A wide variety of topics is presented in an attempt to cover many areas of interest to residents.

After paying a one-time membership fee of $25, members can enroll in as many individual courses as are offered, for a very modest fee per course (typically $15) to cover the cost of materials and audio-visual aids.

ILR Board of Directors

The SaddleBrooke Institute For Learning In Retirement is run by a Board of 8 volunteer Directors who are residents of SaddleBrooke. The Board meets once a month on the third Friday of the month to plan the activities of the ILR, review proposed courses, discuss any issues facing the organization, and generally try to make sure that the ILR is meeting its goals.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Joel Waldstreicher, founder and former president of the ILR. Joel was a major force in the ongoing success of the Institute and will be greatly missed. Byron Cotter has been elected by the ILR Board to take Joel's place as president.

ILR Directors are:

Boyd Bosma
Claire Cordon
Byron Cotter
Lockwood Carlson
Riley Jackson
Leigh Leuthold
Ken Lund
Ken Marich
Sharon Triester
Larry Zanatta
