Although holiday music and seasonal displays seem to creep into public life earlier and earlier each year, there's no denying that the holiday season is truly here in full force. Everywhere we turn there seems to be shopping chaos, hyperactive advertising vying for our attention, and the lure of fun-filled adventures over the river and through the woods. But amidst all the activity, there is a quiet center of being thankful that never goes away, no matter how hectic our schedules seem to get.
That's why I wanted to take this opportunity to say "thank you!" to all of our LearningLife participants. I know there are a lot of choices out there when it comes to how you spend your precious time, and I'm grateful that you have chosen to make LearningLife a part of your busy schedule.
Based on your response to our fall programs, this is going to be a year for the record books. Just this fall alone, more than 2,000 of you have taken part in our unique learning experiences!
