A new, very timely lecture has been added to our Fall Schedule.
Wednesday, September 30    2:00-4:00
     In light of the crisis facing Europe and the West caused by migrants fleeing Syria, Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan, this talk will explain the legal process in place to address the crisis.
  The law applicable to most of Europe and the United States is based on the United Nations Convention on Refugees of 1951. The standards for being granted asylum and the process one goes through to obtain asylum and relocation to one of the signatories of the convention, which include the United States and most of Europe, will be discussed.
   The speaker will give examples of refugees he has represented from Syria, Iran, Crimea and Afghanistan in similar proceedings in U.S. Immigration Court.  The concept of Temporary Protected States (TPS) as opposed to asylum will also be discussed.

PRESENTER: William Hoffmann, JD, PhD. is Senior Counsel with the Georgia Asylum and Immigration Network in Atlanta.

Cost:  $25 members/$35 non-members
Coordinator: Ed Mawyer

The Friday, July 31 class will change from Apple Watch to iPhoto for Apple Computers.  Apple has not released the program which allows Nigel to project the images from the watch to the screen, and it may be next year before the program is available, so we are unable to offer the Apple Watch classes. 
    Since the iPhoto on July 21 is already full, this gives another opportunity to register for this class -- and we have a third presentation of iPhoto already scheduled for September 15.  Many opportunities to learn all about the new iPhoto capabilities.

It is with profound sadness that we report the death of our dear friend and Board member, Sandra Mackey who passed away Sunday, April 19, after a brief illness.  Sandra has been instrumental in the incredible success of the Center For Life Enrichment and was a popular lecturer on the Middle East.

A memorial service will be held at the First Presbyterian Church in Highlands at 11 AM Monday, April 27 with a reception to follow.
I know you all join me in extending our sincere condolences to Dan, Colin and the entire Mackey family at this difficult time.

NEW CLE CLASS: What are Old People For? To Change the World!

Join CLE founder and popular lecturer NELL MARTIN as she challenges current stereotypes.  Never before in history have so many people lived so long. What are the roles of elders in our society? What is your role? How do we create and claim elder roles for ourselves in a society greatly in need of elder wisdom but offering few such roles or models to its seniors? The planet does not need more successful people. It desperately needs more peacemakers, healers, storytellers and lovers of all kinds. This is not something that is easily done alone. It requires preparation at all levels - physical, financial, psychological and spiritual. Come and explore answers to these questions and more. Re-examine and explore your own role as an elder.

Nell Martin is a pioneer in the study of Elderhood - Re-imagining Aging in our Society Today. A motivational speaker and training facilitator, Nell has worked with leaders throughout the country in the field of retirement life planning.
