President's Message

Hello. We hope you had a great summer.

Welcome to WWLL’s Fall semester. All except one of our regular courses return. Returning from sabbaticals are Bill Kaufman with A History of God and Frank Villa with The Science of New England Weather. The American Issues, Greater Boston Cultural Institutions, and History Potpourri courses have a total of 30 excellent speakers scheduled.

On probable hiatus this semester is the German course that has met for more than 25 years. Long-time teacher Renate Olsen has retired and a replacement is yet to be found. We thank Renate for her many years of superb teaching.

Save the date: November 5 will be our third Annual Socialization Luncheon. All registrants and teachers are invited. About 150 of you came last year.

As usual, we encourage you to bring your friends to WWLL to share in our community.

—Bruce Belason


Inclement weather: Classes cancelled only if Wellesley schools are closed. Classes start at the usual time if the Wellesley schools’ opening is delayed.

Parking: We realize parking can be a challenge. The church’s lot will not accommodate everyone. PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN THE CHURCH LOT’S FIRE LANES OR RESERVED SPACES. Advisable to arrive early. On-street metered parking is available (Bring quarters; you can exceed the posted two-hour limit but must keep the meter fed). There is a large metered municipal lot nearby off Eaton Court (see the parking map on the directions page). An option for walkers: The Wellesley Community Center kindly permits WWLL use of their lot on a space-available basis.

Handicap accessability: Unfortunately not all classrooms are handicap accessible.

Comment: Some courses meet fewer than 10 times. The fee is still $40. But, registrants in these courses may attend any other course that meets at the same time for the other weeks of the semester.
