A note from Bev Amsterdam, Executive Director of Live and Learn Bethesda
I want to extend a warm welcome to our Live & Learn Bethesda friends.
We have just completed the classes for our first Live & Learn Bethesda catalog –
Spring/Summer of 2012. I wanted to thank all of you who attended LLB classes
and helped us make our first catalog a success. I enjoyed meeting each and
every one of you and having you become part of the LLB family. I appreciate
your suggestions for topics, presentations, and times of classes.
Our Fall Catalog (now available on our website) is an opportunity for you to explore, to learn, and pursue
your interests with a wide array of class lectures. Our instructors are selected
for their passion and depth of knowledge in their chosen subject areas. I
would like every experience at LLB to be one where you feel you have gotten
“value” from your time. Life is an exciting adventure, and LLB is your roadmap,
providing unique and exciting classes as you travel along the road. Our classes
are conveniently offered in the morning, afternoon and evening – and some
LLB will be offering several new series of classes this fall. Here’s a few of them –
Award winning storyteller Noa Baum will present a series entitled Hidden
Treasures: Your Story as a Gift. Mark and Martha Hanak will present a series of
ballroom dancing classes featuring the waltz, swing, salsa and the cha cha.
I am so pleased to be able to share programs with you from my new friends – IONA Senior Services. IONA’s mission is to support people as they experience the challenges
and opportunities of aging. IONA will present a series on Aging
in Place and the Community, with classes on Retirement and Beyond, Health
and Wellness, How to be an Effective Caregiver, and Staying in Charge.
Lylie Fisher, an award winning visual artist, transformational coach, and Director
of Community Engagement at IONA, will be presenting two series of classes,
Innovation and the Creativity Incubator, and Reaching for the Unknown and
Beyond - Life Intention Workout. Meg Artley, Director of Development at IONA
will present three series of classes – Creativity Circles, Vinyassa Flow Yoga, and
Please join the LLB family and help us make it successful.
I hope to see you often in the coming fall season.
