FALL 2019 SEMESTER
The Fall 2019 semester will begin on Tuesday, September 10, 2019, and will end on October 31.
The program of lectures and bus trips is complete.
The schedule in matrix form and the synopses are available for download on the appropriate pages of this website.
We are trying to arrange for RabbitTransit shuttle bus service from the parking lots to the lecture halls and return after the second lecture. We will announce details as soon as we can. The IRP map (available for download on the About IRP page of this website) shows the planned shuttle bus stops.
The enrollment form for the Fall 2019 semester is now available for download on the Enrollment page of this website.
Enrollment for one semester is $25 for one person, or $40 per couple, which covers attendance at any or all of the 39 lectures. It does not include the cost for bus trips or special events.
We had 394 members enrolled for the Spring semester, and 135 of them are already enrolled for the Fall semester. Our average attendance for the Spring semester was 87.
We do not accept payment for enrollment in future calendar years.
In looking to the future, we are exploring alternative venues, but we hope to remain at Wilson College in the Spring 2020 semester.
Any computer capable of receiving and downloading IRP attachments
should be able to download IRP documents from this website.
Last year, we experienced IRP messages sent to multiple addressees with attachments being blocked by some email servers, and some other recipients’ computers putting these messages into SPAM or JUNK-Mail folders.
If you are on the IRP email list and you do not receive expected IRP emails, please check your spam or junk-mail folder.
If IRP emails are not reaching your computer, or if you have any questions, please call John Ricca, 717-352-8996.
Thanks for your cooperation.
NOTE: Most members’ computers will not print from email attachments. For almost all members, it will print correctly if the attachment is first downloaded to the computer (Documents or My Documents folder), then opened from within the Documents folder and printed from the computer without the interference of the email program.
In keeping with our policy of cooperation with Wilson College, we will include information about Wilson College Common Hour lectures in the IRP weekly bulletins – unless they conflict with IRP scheduled lectures. Additional information about Common Hour lectures can be seen at: wilson.edu/common-hour.
