President’s invitation to a new season, Aug. 2013

Good Summer Day!

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. – Albert Camus

How quickly the seasons come and go, autumn is just around the corner and, while we may not be flowers, Partners in Learning certainly offers us the opportunity of a ‘second spring’. Nurturing our brains promotes healthy growth and what better way to do that than through one, or more, of the exciting sessions Beckey Jackson and her curriculum committee have organized. Exercise of any sort is more fun in a group, mental exercise being no exception. And we do have fun at PIL!

Knowledge is accumulated in many ways. One of those is to attend the PIL Open House at Pine Dale Motor Inn on Sept. 9, from 2 to 4 p.m. Courses will be explained, a mini- Socrates Café enacted, and a variety of activities will await your participation. There will be refreshments of course, as well as the opportunity to ask questions and gather information before registering for the course of your choice. Please bring a friend or neighbour, this is the ideal time to ‘spread the word’. Without participants PIL would not exist.

Along that line, the management team is still seeking volunteers for two positions: Vice President (2014) and Publicity. We all enjoy attending and participating in the courses but it is important to realize that these can only be offered because, behind the scenes is an active management team. Neither of these positions is onerous and there is lots of support available from experienced members. If you enjoy PIL and want to see it continue I urge you to consider taking a role.

Peruse the enclosed brochure, call for more information and come out to the Open House on Sept.9, at Pine Dale Motor Inn from 2 to 4 p.m. I look forward to seeing you as PIL offer another year of mental stimulation and exercise.
