Welcome to the Institute for Mature Learners

Welcome to all our IML members and potential members! Google “IML Drury” to learn more about the Institute for Mature Learners.

The presntations for May, June and July of this year are both informative and fun! Enjoy the company of other mature learners as we learn about Gayle Harper’s new photographic book on the Mississippi and view some of her now-famous pictures. Linda Chorice brings us up to date on the great things taking place at our Missouri Conservation and Nature Center and Bob Stephens, Mayor of Springfield, will update us on issues facing our fair city. John Rutherford explores the history of Springfield and Melina Mullins will talk and sing about her famous “Ozark Jubilee” father, Johnny Mullins. Look at the listing to the right of this column for all the other terrific presentations being made this quarter.

I hope you can join us and bring a friends. Annual dues are only $35 and are due in February – it’s money well spent!

Chair, Curriculum Committee
