September 2022

Greetings to all Lifelong Learners!

Are you ready to be challenged intellectually and share stimulating discussions with other lifelong learners in the Dove Mountain area? The Lifelong Learning Board has put together another great semester of courses designed to keep you thinking. Fall classes run Monday through Wednesday from October 24 – November 16.

All classes this fall will meet in person in the Catalina II Room with the exception of a tour of the Oro Valley Library where you will find out all the resources available to you through your library card!

Sue Pfeiffer, a former science teacher and Highlands resident, will lead a 4-part series called Hacking the Mind. each session is described in further detail in the course description in our registration section
at www.llrhdm.com. But the question will be, how much are we influenced by advertising, the media and the technological tools of today?

There will be 4 Great Decisions sessions covering –
• Changing Demographics In The U.S.
• The Quad Alliance
• Drug Policy In Latin America
• U.S. Industrial Policy
Each session will begin with a video produced by the Foreign Policy Administration, followed by a discussion led by one of our own LLRH facilitators.

Other offerings include a performance by the UA Fred Fox Graduate string quartet, the poetry of Russian/Ukrainian Anna Akhamatova, a film noir 2-part series led by John Abeln, a class on Japanese culture, the woman behind Mt. Lemmon’s name, finding peace and life balance through meditation, and finally Future Perfect – what’s that all about?

Our board member, John Lenzi, has developed the fall 2022 curriculum along with Sus Baker and Sue Pfeiffer. It is always our goal to provide the highest caliber of presenters for our LLRH members.

Course information and forms can be found at www.llrhdm.com or the Highlands website. Complete the registration/Membership form online and pay with your credit card. The membership fees are reasonable, $40 for Highland residents and $50 for Non-Highlands residents. All Lifelong Learners are welcome!
