ELM is delighted to resume classes this Fall Session by offering, virtual on-line classes. While the current challenges of the coronavirus pandemic continue to challenge all of us, we are quite fortunate that we have the technology that will allow us to again meet on-line, safely see and talk to one other (physically distant but socially close). We can all continue our learning adventures with an amazing line-up of classes, and once again see our ELM friends. You need ELM!
And the good news is that you can sign up for and take as many classes as you would like. Instead of just the two or three in which you would normally register, you have the opportunity to sample some new classes. Sign-up and attend something new for a session or two – if it works, great! If not, you were able to “give it a try!”
And ELM needs you. ELM would not exist without you – and your need for lifelong learning, intellectual stimulation, and social connection with others. And although ELM is a non-profit, 501-(c)3 organization, it does need your financial support to cover its prudent expenses, which include compensation for its director and small, part-time time; booking and tax preparation; printing and materials; web hosting and related costs; and other costs to maintain operations.
Please, take a few moments to peruse the Fall Session class list – and sign up for a few classes. Your registration fee will help cover expenses that have continued even with the loss of revenue due to our public health crisis.
And whether or not you take any classes, consider making a tax-deductible contribution of any amount to ELM by going to the “Donate” tab on the website (elmcobb.org). Your support is needed to continue the viability of this wonderful and enriching organization that has served our community for almost 40 years! You can help make it happen – for you!
