Learning In Retirement
The mission of Learning in Retirement, Inc. (LIR), through its affiliation with Lincoln University, is to provide continuing learning opportunities and to promote sharing of ideas, knowledge and experience for retired and/or seniors in Jefferson City and the surrounding area.
Throughout the year LIR offers many activities that promote our mission. At the end of June and at the end of December, a newsletter is published describing upcoming activities for our membership - travel, classes, interest clubs, and other special events. Travel may include day trips and overnight excursions. Classes may meet one time only, or once per week for a 4-week period. Some classes are free and some have a minimal fee. Most interest clubs meet monthly; although, some meet weekly. There is no charge for club participation. In mid-January and mid-July, LIR hosts a business meeting, and in December LIR hosts a holiday gathering. Occasionally, other special events are offered.
Our January and July business meetings are open to the public. Non-members are welcome to attend and learn a bit more about Learning in Retirment. Membership is required to participate in all other activities.
Upcoming travel, courses and meetings can be view on the Calendar page of this website. To review clubs, click here.
Membership is required in order to participate in the acitivities sponsored by Learning in Retirement. An annual membership fee of $40 is due in January of each year. New members joining after June 30 will pay a membership fee of $25 for the remainder of the first year.
Learning in Retirement exists because of its membership. It is a volunteer-run organization, so members are encouraged to help in areas that interest them, if they are able.
