Live and Learn Bethesda

I am happy to tell you about Live & Learn Bethesda - a new organization whose mission is to enrich the community through interesting, informative, and stimulating classes for people of all ages.  We are excited to work in partnership with the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center (BCCRSC) to provide our programs in the heart of downtown Bethesda, convenient to the Bethesda Metro.

Our instructors are selected for their passion and depth of knowledge in their chosen subject area.  We want every experience at LLB to be one where you feel you've gotten "value" from your time.  LLB gives neighbors and families a place to make connections, share interests, and enrich themselves in a wide variety of classes including:

• Health & Wellness
• Arts & Music
• Computers
• Exercise & Fitness
• History & Literature
• Hobbies & Creative Arts
• Home & Garden
• Culture & Politics
• Aging & Retirement
• Local Interest

In celebration of the launching of Live and Learn Bethesda, we are having a Grand Opening at BCCRSC on Saturday April 21st from 11 am to 2 pm.  We will have live entertainment from 11am to 1pm presented by Not 2 Cool Jazz, and serve light refreshments.  We invite all of you to attend this event, visit our location, see the BCCRSC classrooms and computer lab, meet some of the instructors, and sign up for classes.

I look forward to meeting you at an upcoming event!  Please visit our website at http://www.liveandlearnbethesda.org/ to view our Spring/Summer class catalog.  For further information please send an email to info@liveandlearnbethesda.org or call us at 301.740.6150.
