The fall Gray Matters is now available! Click here to read the latest news about TSCOR. There’s a new staff member to welcome, several wonderful articles about our volunteers, news about an exciting grant, and lots more! For those of you who prefer the post office to the web, check your mailboxes starting this weekend for your very own copy. Enjoy!
Due to different computer software versions here in the office, the schedule that I posted yesterday cut out the Feldenkrais class. This will not do because Feldenkrais is so popular and we will indeed offer it again this year!
The correct version is available by clicking HERE and all links have been updated on our website. Sorry about that.
Thank you to those who let us know – Julie

Good Summer Everyone!
I miss seeing you all at the Open University and Lunch and Life. I hope everyone is enjoying themselves and keeping cool in the humidity (and dry in the rain!). Since you may not be in classes right now, I would like to share a lecture that I attended at another lifelong learning program about a month ago. It is eye-opening. Do yourself a favor and watch it. Take good care – Julie

This morning, Susie Wiltshire’s French class gathered for what has become their annual end of the year celebration. Yours truly was a guest (and the one behind the camera!) and I thoroughly enjoyed myself and got to experience their magic time together. What a great group of people!
The Open University starts up again in the fall, on September 17, 2018. Don’t you want to learn French too (or German, or Spanish, or Latin, or Russian, or Japanese)?!? You know you do – Julie
