LLL in the time of the Pandemic
Season Cancelled, now what?
Following the directives of the HOA Board, LifeLong Learning is canceling all LLL events through May 17.
We have a record of everyone who paid for a class, trip or the final Premier Lecture, and we will be issuing refunds. Please be patient as it will take a bit of time for us to put the procedures in place.
We also regret that we will not be holding the clothing drive for St. Vincent de Paul.
However, just because we’re practicing social distancing and not venturing far from our homes, there’s no reason to stop learning!
Why not take a break from the constant news about the coronavirus by exploring some of these learning activities compiled by LifeLong Learning at PebbleCreek. We’ll be sending more along periodically, but how’s this for a start?
Visit a museum, virtually! Google Art’s and Culture has virtual tours of the British Museum in London, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and many others! Browse the list and visit a museum you’ve wanted to visit, but haven’t yet.
Watch an opera! New York’s Metropolitan Opera is streaming videos of operas, with subtitles! Each day beginning at 4:30 p.m. the Met features a different opera, which will be available for 20 hours, but they are also available at on-demand on various sites.
Watch a TED Talk! We’ve been posting all the TED Talks we’ve watched over the years – plenty of food for thought. A warning: you might get hooked on TED Talks!
Many thanks for your understanding, and keep washing those hands!
President, LifeLong Learning at PebbleCreek
We need your ideas!
Know a great speaker?
If you know of a great speaker who might be of interest to our community, the LLL Lecture Team would love to hear from you! Residents have recommended many speakers for Monday Morning and Premier Lectures. The LLL Lecture Team is always open to your suggestions.
Speaker-recommendation forms are available online and in the LLL Center. We ask for some basic information on the speaker you are recommending.
The lecture series has been a successful and enjoyable program, and would not be possible without the help of the PC community.
Here are some of the things we look for in a speaker:
- Knowledgeable in area of expertise.
- Engaging and dynamic with excellent speaking skills.
- Previous speaking experience for the purpose of educating, inspiring, entertaining.
- No political, philosophical or religious “agenda.”
- We are looking for educational topics that will challenge and stimulate attendees and open minds to new ideas or points of view.
- We are open to lectures on a variety of topics.
To Show Our Appreciation
If a speaker you recommend (who is not already on our list) is engaged for an MML or Premier Lecture, we will offer you two free Premier Lecture tickets for Premier speakers and two free MML tickets for MML speakers during the fall or spring lecture season.
