Lifetime Learners Institute (LLI) is an independent nonprofit institute for lifelong learning within Norwalk Community College. Our purpose is to offer non-credit, educational programs for area residents aged 50 or older. We offer over 40 courses each Spring and Fall, taught by LLI facilitators, as well as daily events during a five-week Winter Session. Our 900 or more members come from all over Fairfield County. Member volunteers run LLI.

Norwalk Community College gives us a home, provides us with offices, meeting rooms, classrooms, services, use of the fine library and Wellness Center, help in many forms, advice when asked for, and the invaluable prestige of a large sheltering institute – making us feel a part of the College. Our members volunteer services to NCC, such as mentoring, library assistance, rush mailings, registration-day help, and participation in Foundation fundraising.

LNL Sailboat Ketch

Around the World in a 30 foot Sailboat

OPEN HOUSE, All are invited!

September 19, 2014
Refreshments at 12:15
Presentation at 1:00

Climb aboard for an exciting sea voyage which took over three years to complete. This 1970’s real-life adventure on rough and tranquil waters is presented through photographs and detailed maps which chart and describe the world’s geography and divergent populations.   Along the way we see and feel the drama of the captain and first mate as they share their experiences in both sometimes life threatening situations and the mundane aspects of living on a small sailboat for over 1,000 days.

Scott Kuhner grew up in Westport, CT where, as a youngster, he learned to sail.¬† Scott, a successful¬†¬† businessman,¬† convinced his young wife, Kitty, to quit their jobs and sail around the world. This true life story by two new Lifetime Learner members reviews their exciting and interesting adventure. Their professional presentation, with pictures and detailed maps, will be personally narrated by them during this extended 1¬Ĺ hour Lunch & Learn presentation.
