The cost of membership is a very affordable $40 for the semester - for all nine programs, which also entitles you to attend any of the other eight Osher Institute programs throughout Vermont. The closest other groups are in Brattleboro and Rutland. Non-members are welcome and encouraged to attend for an $8 individual program fee.
Memberships, with checks made out to the University of Vermont, may be sent to Joyce Lindamood, Springfield Osher Treasurer, P.O. Box 92, Springfield, VT 05156. Or memberships may be paid at the program.
Programs are held on Tuesdays from two to about 3:30 p.m. at the comfortable meeting room and easily accessible Nolin Murray Center, next to St. Mary's Catholic Church on Pleasant St. in Springfield. There is plenty of parking.
The Fall 2009 brochures have just been mailed out to people on the mailing list, and have been distributed to libraries and public places throughout the area. If you would like to receive a brochure you may call the Springfield Osher message phone at 885-8390 ext.8550 and leave your name and address.
