Next LLI Forum
At the January Forum, Dr. Gridlock (Mr. Richard Thomson), enlightened us on what to expect, and what not to expect, from all the various transportation changes and improvements that are taking place and he touched on some future projects for the area.
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.
West Virginia Train Trip
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.
The artists! Working with instructor, Davi D’Agostino, LLI members had big fun painting their own acrylic masterpieces in just a single class session.
CAMPUS PARKING FOR THE HANDICAPPED
NVCC does not issue special permits for using the parking spaces designated for the handicapped on the Annandale campus. Appropriate parking permits issued by any state and the District of Columbia are honored. The permit must be properly displayed and used only by the person or persons to whom it is issued. There is no change to the handicap parking regulations on campus.
The parking fee in the NOVA garage has been increased to $2.00 per hour.

Did You Know?
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.

Our group of 21 folks stop for a picture in Mittenwald, in Bavaria, Germany, as part of our 2016 Romantic Villages of Alpine Europe tour.
Members periodically select specific subjects or themes for their photographs. The current theme is “Hands.” The following photos, taken and selected by members, exemplify that theme.
If you have any questions about our SIG, please contact your co-chairs Patti (firstname.lastname@example.org)or Nancy (email@example.com).
