Introducing ILR

The Institute of Learning in Retirement is a group of active seniors aged 55 and over who are committed to life-long learning, social interaction, and travel.  Anyone who has attained the age of 55 is welcome without regard to race, creed, color, or gender.

Fifteen area seniors founded ILR in 1993. By 2018 the organization had grown to 1100 members and offered about 100 programs per year.
