LIRWC News

Our 2022 spring semester program was a huge success as previous and new members alike returned to classes after a long COVID break. We are looking forward to another great semester this fall with over 35 courses already booked. A large percentage of these courses are new and bring in additional qualified instructors from the community. We will once again offer in person only, Zoom only and hybrid course offerings. Although, most members are electing to return to the classroom for more personal interaction, socialization and learning experience. This semester will also offer more short courses for your enjoyment. Classes start Monday, September 12 and end Friday, December 23, 2022. Classes have staggered start and end times during the semester, so you have the flexibility to sign up for classes that match your schedule.

We are especially excited to present a new online registration system for ease of registration, review of available courses and immediate confirmation of your class selection. Watch for more information in mid-July when the new 2022 Fall Course Catalog will be available – both online and by mail for those individuals requiring a hard copy. All of this will be presented at our upcoming Annual Kick-off Event, August 5, 2022, at the Anthony J. Natalizio Center, Rooms S-104A/B, on the WCTC Pewaukee Campus. Entertainment, presentations, refreshments and on-site registration will be available.

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are still very much active and several meet through the summer months. If you are not currently a member but are curious about a SIG, contact the office and we can arrange for you to attend one or two of the SIG meetings over the summer so you can “whet your appetite” and realize you would like to join this fall. The following SIGs meet over the summer: Hiking, Golf, Sheepshead, Mah-jongg, Genealogy, Beading & Jewelry, and Philosophy. Starting up again in the fall are Book Lovers, Recipe Trading, Game Playing, Singers, Bridge, Theater and Creative Crafters.

The Special Events Committee organized some great trips this past spring traveling to the Drury Lane Theater to see Evita and a whirlwind trip to Oshkosh where members visited the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Museum, Paine Art Center and Gardens, and the Oshkosh Public Museum with a special lunch at Benvenuto’s Italian Grill to round out the day. The committee is currently focused on the LIRWC Annual Meeting (June 28th – members only) and the Annual Kick-off Event on August 5, 2022 – open to the public. Watch this site, your local newspapers and your mailbox for more information! We will be publishing a calendar of events for the fall in August, so plan on another season of fun and exciting trips to regional locations.

LIRWC continues its community outreach programs, which were highlighted by our attendance at the spring 50 Plus Fest and Retirement show at the Marcus Majestic Theater in Brookfield and the ADRC Senior Resource Fair held at the Sussex Civic Center. We continue to partner with several senior community centers to bring LIRWC opportunities to home-bound residents.

We are always open to hearing from you! Contact us with comments and ideas at the office: lir@wctc.edu, 62.695.3473, or lirwcquestions@gmail.com to reach a board member directly.
