Institute for Mature Learners

Drury University > Institute for Mature Learners

Greetings fellow IML members,

Here we are in 2020! I never thought I would get here. Our first IML session begins Feb. 4 with John Sellars, executive director of the History Museum on the Square, and ends with Helen White describing the Boonville Road/Mail Route, a history of early settlers along the Boonville Road on April 28. We have planned a great line-up for you in between.

All meetings will be held on the lower level of the Olin Library at Drury University from 2-3 p.m. each Tuesday during the months of February, March and April.

If you know someone who is not a member and wishes to join, the fee is $35. Invite them to come and check us out; the first visit is free.

See you in February.

Ray VanOstran, Chair
