ELLA Members Love Learning!

ELLA is the place to learn, with a positive cohort of like-minded individuals. It is a true place for lifelong learning.

ELLA has been a ‘must' in my life for over a decade. It helped me figure out what I wanted to be in retirement. I have developed some new skills and learned a great deal about the world of the past, present and future. Mostly, I have learned about people. The learning is infectious!
Judy Rikley
While we learn in many different ways, I’ve always found I do better at it when it’s structured, has a curriculum presented by someone who knows what they are talking about, and when I have the opportunity to talk with others about it. ELLA’s Spring Program has provided all of these things.
