A Message from our President
Welcome back to LLI. In 2012/2013 your LLI turned itself around with a greater program of interesting and new offerings. Your feedback and our own assessment are the basis of our exciting 2013/2014 program. On this page, you’ll see your LLI Board of Directors and Officers, many of whom are new to us. They’re starting to bring with them new ideas, new programs and improvements on our old trusted programs. Among them you’ll find well over 100 years of LLI and other experience in Continuing Education and allied experience, backed up by over 200 years of additional experience in the Committees working behind the scenes. Together they have prepared an awesome program.
We’re offering a choice of activities to delight: Courses, Lectures, Trips, Book Club, Poetry Lovers Club, local Eco Tours and International Films. We’ll be test marketing some new offerings in new venues, which we will keep from publishing just yet, but will be of broad interest at this time. We’re reopening our Englewood programs. And we’ll be doing this with the help of our talented Faculty, Volunteers, Board and Committee Members, our Colleagues from Edison State College and one part time Office Manager. We’re doing all this on a shoestring.
Hasan Hammami, President
LLI Announces the Start of its New Legacy Fund
LLI is proud to announce the start of a new LLI Trust Fund, to be called the LLI Legacy Fund. This Fund has been started to assure the long term well being of LLI. The Legacy fund will not be used to pay LLI operating expenses. The principal of the Fund will be used exclusively for things that have to do with the Future Growth and Development of LLI approved by the LLI Executive Committee of the Board. Revenue from the Legacy Fund, whether interest, earnings or income may be used for special projects which are defined by the Donors to the Fund.
The LLI Legacy fund is being started with about $7,000, made up of the Mary Blake Fund, current LLI CD’s and the recent donations made in honor of the late Mr Stevenson and a gift by the Hammami Family Trust Fund.
Donations to the Fund whether in Currency, Gifts, Wills or Trusts may be made anytime by check,cash, credit card, equities or properties or online. Please contact the President, the Treasurer or the LLI Office.
