Registrations for Winter 2015 Courses Still Accepted

The formal registration period for winter term closed December 12.  Notifications to registered enrollees in all courses have gone out, along with class enrollment lists.  However, late registrations will still be accepted until the term begins, for courses that still have unfilled places.  Five courses are now filled, as is one section of a sixth.  (Click the Enrollment tab at the top of this page.)  Anyone still wanting to enroll in one of the open courses may submit a registration form in the box at the Senior Center or mail it to the Senior Center.  If you have further questions, contact our registrar, Dale Sommers:  d.sommers@charter.net  507-645-8673

For details on all courses, click the Course Schedule and Course Descriptions tabs at the top of this page.

In Memoriam

Madow

We note with sorrow the passing on December 1 of a special CVEC member, Shirlee Madow, of Faribault.  Shirlee was recognized at the annual membership meeting last May as the student who took the most courses (52) over the past 10 years—and now digging farther back to our 1997 beginning, we find a grand total of 73, far surpassing anyone else’s.  Clearly the Elder Collegium was an important part of the last fifteen years of her life.  She also served on the Board as our “Faribault representative” between 2008 and 2011.  We will miss her presence.
