pencil-regThe Bluewater Association for Lifelong Learning's 2014 – 2015 season begins Thursday, September 11 and, if you haven't purchased yours already, "early bird" subscriptions are still available – up until August 31.
When you buy your BALL 2014-2015 membership ($10.) and purchase three or more lecture series passes by August 31, 2014, you can deduct $10 from the cost of the third series you purchase. That means you save the cost of your membership!
