DCLIR Members and Potential Members:

As our SPRING 2023 term welcomes its first class, we invite you to check your registration confirmations and calendars. Watch for emails from the class coordinators which include specific information about the class, ZOOM links where appropriate and the very important link to the Feedback sheet.

If you are unable to attend, please notify the coordinator asap so that if the class has a Wait List, there is time to contact someone to take your place.

Additionally, if you wonder if there are classes with available seats, check out the Spring 2023 Open Class List. Registration remains open through the term.

Thank you for your support of Door County Learning in Retirement
