Spring 2017

WWLL Welcomes Seniors From All Communities

For 41 years, about 300 seniors from Wellesley, Weston, Framingham, Natick, Needham, Newton and about 20 other cities and 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. Something new: You can now access videos of some of American Issues' past classes, and WWLL's May 2016 40th Anniversary celebration, on WWLL's own YouTube channel. Simply click here on WWLL videos.

Fifteen courses are offered. All the Fall 2016 teachers return except Bill Kaufman who is on sabbatical. Steve Lowe returns with his Constitutional Law course. A new teacher is Bob Begin who will teach the History Potpourri course. Two new courses are Getting the Most from Your Mobile Device taught by folks from Natick’s Morse Institute Library, and Writing Your Ethical Will, taught by WWLL registrant Glee Snyder.

About half of the Fall 2016 registrants came to the first Annual Socialization Luncheon in November. By all accounts, everyone had a fine time. We plan to repeat the luncheon in the Fall of 2017.

As usual we encourage you to bring friends to WWLL, by far the best method for us to reach new registrants. Prospective registrants may attend two weeks of classes as guests.

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.
