ATTENTION ILR SUBSCRIBERS
The 2020 Winter/Spring classes are now ended, and since all the SaddleBrooke HOA buildings are closed because of the coronavirus, we are looking for ways to present a summer program. One of our instructors had good results using Zoom to finish his winter/spring class, so we are going to try using Zoom to present some summer classes. Three instructors have volunteered to hold classes using Zoom, and those classes arelisted here on the website. These classes will be free, but we will be asking subscribers to register if they wish to attend so that the instructors know how many attendees to expect and who they are. We hope you will participate and enjoy our Zoom experiment! Click on Register Here in the main menu above to see the class descriptions and to register.
And, be sure to read the tips (below) for using the website!

What is ILR?
The Institute For Learning In Retirement (ILR) is an organization formed in 2005 by a group of SaddleBrooke residents to provide a broad range of educational opportunities for all the residents of SaddleBrooke. No tests, no grades, no papers - just a group of people getting together to learn something new. ILR course leaders are SaddleBrooke residents who have knowledge or expertise in certain areas and a desire to share that knowledge with others. The ILR is subscriber-driven and is dedicated to providing an environment that leads to lively discussion and interaction on topics of interest to its subscribers.
The ILR offers two sessions of courses each year: one in the fall, and one in winter/spring. Courses usually last 5 or 6 weeks, depending on the topic, and meet once a week for 2 hours. This allows ample opportunity for discussion and interaction among the participants. The quality, scope and presentation of each course are directed by the ILR Board of Directors. A wide variety of topics is presented in an attempt to cover many areas of interest to residents.
After paying a one-time fee of $25, subscribers can enroll in as many individual courses as are offered, for a very modest fee per course (typically $15) to cover the cost of materials and audio-visual aids.
