Next LLI Forum
Our June Forum speaker was LLI's own Joseph Pincus, who led us through the continuing controversy on who actually wrote the plays of Shakespeare. He "wowed" us with his one man, compare and contrast, presentation between the Bard of Avon and the 17th Earl of Oxford.
The Forum room is located on the second level of the Ernst Cultural Center, NOVA-Annandale Campus. Coffee, tea and light refreshments will be served at 9:30 a.m.
Aging in Place is for those members who want to live in their home for as long as possible. The web site contains Service Providers by category of service for easy access to multiple providers. Members may find the help they need to make living safer and more comfortable as the need arises. For members still considering the alternative options to Aging in Place, various options are also presented, such as moving to a “Village”, Senior Living Facility, Long Term Care Facilities and Nursing Homes.
LLI Aging in Place provides names and contacts for services and does not make recommendations. It is the member’s responsibility to contact the service provider and arrange for the service.
To access these services providers click on the title “Aging in Place Service Providers” above.
In 1999 LLI established a Student Scholarship Program at the Northern Virginia Community College-Annandale Campus to give much needed financial help to outstanding students. This is in appreciation and recognition of the support provided by the college to LLI, as well as an opportunity to support a most worthy cause.

As a member of LLI you have a wonderful Northern Virginia Community College Library at your disposal. The library is located on the third floor of the Godwin Building. This is just up the ramp from the Richard J. Ernest Community and Cultural Center. To use the library you simply sign up for a Community Patron card by showing a picture ID. You then can charge out a limit of three books for three weeks and take them home. Also you can renew books online for an additional period. If you have LLI classes on the campus, this resource would be very convenient. Go to http://www.nvcc.edu/library/ for more information.
