The CLL offers many ways for men and women 60 and over to participate in our programs. CLL members and guest registrants each use the Center to their best advantage. Some attend classes and programs several times per week, while others select outings or special topic courses according to their schedule and interest. They all value the ideas, energy, and friendships they gain through the Center’s intellectual, creative, and wellness programs.
