WELCOME TO THE UCONN ADULT LEARNING PROGRAM
CELEBRATES ALP'S 25TH ANNIVERSARY,
More than a hundred members turned out for our June 2nd luncheon that celebrated ALP's 25th Anniversary. Eight charter members who pioneered the founding of ALP (standing left to right: Flo Grieb, Carol Fine, Seymour and Shirley Reitman, Pat Walker and Joyce Carleton; sitting: Anne Lasser and Fannie Gabriel), were guests of honor and beautiful keepsake booklets containing their recollections and a history of ALP were distributed to each attendee.
At the annual meeting preceding the luncheon, guest speaker and former health care consultant Joseph Walton conducted a very informative PowerPoint presentation about Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs). He explained about the types of CCRCs in operation, the various levels of service currently available and a formula for calculating the affordability of living in a typical CCRC facility.
A brief business meeting followed Mr. Walton's presentation during which attendees elected Bob LaPorte and Ivan Backer as the new Co-Chairs to lead ALP for the coming year. Also elected were Bob Hewey (Treasurer), Ann Winship (Secretary), Gwen Sibley (ALP Horn Editor), Marnie Clark and Shirley Morrison (Communication Committee Co-Chairs), Dan Heuer (Membership Committee Co-Chair) Agnes Pier (Curriculum Committee Co-Chair), Charles Harderson (Seabury Representative At Large) and Jim Yaeger (Duncaster Representative At Large). All will serve on ALP's Board of Directors for the coming year along with carryovers Bob Ellis, Shirley Dudley and Paula Fisher.
Our congratulations and thanks to all the volunteers who are now serving ALP, those who have served in the past and those who will serve in the future but just don't know it yet.
Speaking of volunteers, our thanks to Ed Raymond, our photographer extraordinaire,for providing the Annual Meeting/Luncheon photos now available on this website under the PHOTOS tab in the blue banner above.
