  1. The Rainbow Lifelong Learning Institute Boston is planning a course on contemporary LGBT issues. Five speakers will present one class each. We would like to include a speaker from Masala.
    The Rainbow Lifelong Learning Institute Boston builds community for LGBT seniors through educational courses and social activities. Our classes are held at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Arlington.
    The contemporary LGBT issues course will meet for 5 weeks on a Tuesday in the fall term (October 30 to November 27). It will be scheduled from 10:30 to noon or from 1:30 to 3:00.
    Please let me know if you have a preference for a certain date in this timeframe. We hope to firm up a speaker schedule by May 1.
    I hope you will participate in this course and look forward to hearing from you.
    Bill Himelhoch
