Thank You for Celebrating 25 Years with Us!

ILR 25 Years logoThanks to you and our generous sponsors, the ILR 25th Anniversary Luncheon was a celebration to remember. Lifelong learners, instructors, volunteers, and friends met together to reminisce on their favorite ILR moments, compete in a trivia game, and honor those who have gone above and beyond to make this program a success. Let’s enjoy another 25 years of Engaging, Enriching, and Enlightening our community together.
