A New Decade of CVLR Offerings

Welcome to 2020, a new decade of CVLR offerings.  Once again, your devoted volunteer coordinators have compiled a unique, interesting, and informative line-up of classes and trips.  The topics range from practical to philosophical, blend history with current issues, and offer insights into personal and cultural situations.  We are fortunate to have a wealth of experience and skills in our members.  More and more are sharing their knowledge and expertise through presentations to our group.  Their involvement builds the strength of Chippewa Valley Learning in Retirement.  Remember that these coordinators and presenters volunteer their time for you.  Please show your appreciation by attending the classes for which you register and thanking them for their contributions.

Steps to Register for Fall Classes and Trips

1. Do not renew your membership if you renewed it last fall.

2. Select the classes and trips that you want and list them in order of priority.

3. Write a separate check for each class or trip before in-person registration. Having your check ready will speed up the process.

4. Split your sign up for classes and trips witih limits with another CVLR member. That way you are both more likely to get the offerings you want.

5. Print out and review the layout of registration to determine your course of action at registration.

6. Register in person Wednesday, February 26. You may also register for one other person. Use that person’s membership number and name when registering for him or her.

7. Attend in-person registration if at all possible. Since we operate on volunteer effort, your participation at in-person registration takes pressure off our volunteers. If you absolutely cannot attend, then mail in your registration. In-person and mail-in are the ONLY two ways to register. In-person registrations get priority over mail-in registrations.
