25 YEARS OF LIFELONG LEARNING
A Milestone to Celebrate!
As we ring in 2023, Adventures in Learning is excited to celebrate its twenty-fifth year!
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, 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 upcoming year 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 trips, gallery events, a new website and much more. A grand 25th Anniversary celebration will take place at Colby-Sawyer on June 8th. Hold the date on your calendar now and look for more information in the coming months.
Guided by the theme, “Celebrating our Past, Investing in our Future,” AIL will kick off an $80,000 fundraising campaign that intends to support the continued growth and viability of the program over the next twenty-five years. 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 look forward to a wonderful 2023, as we celebrate 25 years of lifelong learning and community enrichment in the Kearsarge-Lake Sunapee region!
