President's Message

Hello. Hopefully winter is almost over.

The fall semester was especially successful, with a 50% growth in registrants. Thanks to all of you who recommended WWLL to your friends—and please continue to do so! To help with the increased challenge of parking, see the new PARKING MAP on the directions page.

Spring courses news: Steve Lowe returns with Federal Law; The Butterfly Effect history course continues; a new course is Blues and Harmonica; History Potpourri expands to 10 weeks, with a featured speaker for football fans (guests welcome) on April 30: Upton Bell, whose father was NFL commissioner, and who himself was Patriots GM in 1971-4 and a Boston radio talk show host for 40 years. A returning speaker to the American Issues course is Alan Schechter, the popular Wellesley College professor emeritus of political science.

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.
