Dear Lifelong Learners,
As we venture into the month of November, I'd like to take a moment to thank you for participating in our 2020 Fall Semester of classes.
Our semester is far from finished. In fact, we have a live Zoom class that continues into November and another that begins in the month of November.
Through the wonder of the virtual world, all the classes in our fall semester are available to register for, and to watch as recorded videos, through November 30th. If we have a rainy day, and we've been known to have some rainy days, you may keep company with any one of our talented faculty as they do what they do best, educate and inform while exploring new ideas.
You may have noticed that Chesapeake Forum's presence in local media has grown. Thanks to the efforts of volunteer Mary Robinson, our courses have been advertised and marketed in the Talbot Spy, Attractions, Baltimore Magazine online, the Star Democrat, My Eastern Shore Magazine, the Dorchester Star and Newsbreak. If you like our Facebook page, you'll receive information about our courses and instructors each week.
During these last two months, we've learned a great deal about virtual learning and we thank you for learning right along with us. Our 2021 winter/spring semester will again be presented as live Zoom classroom sessions with video recordings as an option. We thank you for your patience and loyalty as Talbot County and Maryland makes its way through the pandemic.
On behalf of our Board of Directors, we wish you a very pleasant Thanksgiving with your families and friends.
President, Chesapeake Forum
