Fall 2016

For 41 years, about 300 seniors from Wellesley, Weston, Needham, Newton and about 20 other towns have met for 10 weeks each spring and fall for classes that provide intellectual stimulation, vigorous discussion and good fellowship. Come join us. Our classes cover a wide range. A brief synopsis of each course and teacher biography can be found on the classes page. WWLL is a qualified 501(c)(3) organization.

President's Message

Welcome to the second semester of WWLL's 40th year!

Welcome. Fourteen courses are offered this fall, including four new ones. Two teachers return from hiatuses (Renate Olsen and Tom Doran), and two teachers (Steve Lowe and Gerry Weisenberg) are taking sabbaticals and plan to return in the spring.

Thanks to all who filled out the questionnaire distributed this past spring. The information and suggestions were very valuable. Thirteen volunteered to serve on various committees, including a Curriculum Committee to find new teachers.

We received many positive comments about the 40th Anniversary Celebration luncheon held this past May. We have decided to make a luncheon an annual event, included in your registration fee. It will probably be in late October, after classes.

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 is limited at the church and is a challenge. Arrive early. Please do not park in the Church's fire lanes or reserved spaces. On-street metered parking is available (you can exceed the 2-hour limit, but keep the meter fed).

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.
