A Milestone to Celebrate!

Adventures in Learning is excited to celebrate its twenty-fifth year in 2023! 

Though AIL has grown since its founding, it remains true to the original vision of providing lifelong learning opportunities that allow community members to engage with both interesting subject matter and each other. We are especially grateful to founding members Hilary Cleveland, Julien and Priscilla LeBourgeois, Charlie Carey, Susie and Bob Gray, Sue and Dick Eaton, Mary and Allan Doyle, Peter and Jean McKee, and Dick and Deniza Martin, who had the foresight and determination to garner the support of Colby-Sawyer College and bring this program to life in 1998. In honor of Hilary Cleveland’s foresight and leadership in the establishment of AIL, we are excited to announce that she has been named honorary chair of the 25th Anniversary of AIL. 


The year 2023 will be filled with special programming to celebrate AIL’s rich history and bright future, including several course reprises, a Community Spotlight series, special lectures, field tripsgallery events, and much more. A grand 25th Anniversary celebration took place at Colby-Sawyer on June 8th (photos by Gil Talbot above).

Guided by the theme, “Celebrating our Past, Investing in our Future,” AIL kicked off an $80,000 fundraising campaign that intends to support the continued growth and viability of the program over the next twenty-five years and beyond. As a volunteer-driven organization, generous support from our members, friends and community partners will be instrumental in our ability to advance our mission and enhance our programs. 

AIL is incredibly grateful to our dedicated volunteers, members and friends, and we are proud to celebrate 25 years of lifelong learning and community enrichment in the Kearsarge-Lake Sunapee region!
