Announcements & Reminders
Genealogy Club and Domino Club Update
The Genealogy Club and Domino Club will not meet in June, July or August. Meetings will resume in September.
Members of the Genealogy Club are reminded to register for the Missouri State Genealogical Association conference to be held Friday and Saturday, August 7 and 8, in Columbia, Missouri. For more information about the conference, check the MoSGA website - www.mosga.org.
LIR is open to adding new clubs if enough interest is shown in an activity.
A new Canasta club will begin in August. It will meet on the second Tuesday of each month from 10 a.m. until noon in Room 8 of Soldiers Hall on the Lincoln University campus. The class coordinator is Barbara Barnard.
Two other new clubs have been suggested. If Spades is your game, the Spades club may be a new offering. If you play a musical instrument and would enjoy jamming with others, then the Instrumental group may interest you. Please contact Marigene Brewer through the LIR office if you have an interest in either of these two clubs or in some other area.
Please welcome our new office manager, Cheri Landers, when you have the opportunity to meet her. We are happy to have her with us.
If you are an LIR member and have not received the latest Newsletter or if you are not a member and would like to join our organization, please contact the LIR office. You can reach the office by phone at 573 681-6152, Monday through Thursday between 10 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just a reminder of our weather related cancellation policy. Please note that the policy regarding LIR trips is different than the policy for meetings, clubs and classes.
Cancellations-Inclement Weather Policy: LIR membership meetings, classes and clubs will be cancelled due to snow or other inclement weather conditions if the Jefferson City Public Schools are not in session (weather related). Local radio and television stations that allow community cancellations will be notified along with one or more of the following: posted on the LIR website; an "ALERT" group email to all members with email address; and/or a call tree. Education Travel trip cancellations occur ONLY when the contracted coach company cancels the trip due to their determination of highway safety. Travelers are contacted individually should a cancellation occur.
The winter (January) general membership meeting is scheduled with a make-up date, typically the same day/time during the following week at the same location. Length and content of meeting will be adjusted to accommodate the make-up situation. In the event that a second weather related cancellation occurs for the membership meeting, a business meeting ONLY will be held within one week of the cancelled meeting. Place & time to be determined.
The annual $40 membership fee for existing members is due in January and covers the entire calendar year, January through December. First time members who join LIR after June 30th, will be assessed a $25 fee which will cover membership through the end of the current year.
Membership information is available on this web site and within the bi-annual newsletter, The Learning Times.
If you have any questions on courses offered by LIR, please contact Carol Ellinger, Chairman of the Curriculum Committee through the LIR office at 681-6152. Carol is always looking for ideas, teachers, and members to serve on the committee. Please contact her if you are interested or have suggestions.
