“I enjoy an intellectual climate that is not otherwise available. I try to take two classes and participate in two clubs every semester. I also enjoy all the Monday afternoon seminars at the central library.” — Douglas First

Special Events Committee

The Encore Learning Special Events Committee works year round with other organizations to prepare special events for members.

Suggestions from members for future places of interest are always welcomed by the Special Events Committee as the greater Washington area is a treasure trove of opportunities, some of which—such as historic homes—are otherwise normally private.
