To all our IML friends and associates,

Our last quarter for 2015 will include many interesting  speakers from Springfield’s Square History Museum, John Sellers to Dr. Brian Detoy to Springfield Symphony’s new conductor Kyle Wiley Picket.  You won’t want to miss any of them.  

The annual dues for Mature Learners is $35 for each person and is due in February.  Dues is $15 per person for those who join in September which carries you to the end of the year.  Please share this information with any of your friends that might want to join in September.

I hope you can be at most, if not all of the meetings!!


John Thurman, Chairman
