Do you know about THE FRIENDS OF ESILL?

As a non-profit organization, ESILL seeks to extend its community support through our membership program, The Friends of ESILL. The organization is made up of a group of interested persons who believe in ESILL's mission and are willing to contribute a modest annual membership fee to sustain "The School for the Fun of It” and our educational goals. Past achievements in our outreach efforts include sizable donations for the building of the Fairhope Public Library and the Fairhope Museum of History. More recently ESILL donated funds to support the Eastern Shore Literacy Council, the Eastern Shore Arts Center, the Daphne Art Center, the Friends of the Fairhope Library’s Raise a Reader program and the summer reading programs at the Fairhope, Daphne and Foley libraries. Additionally, ESILL sponsored the production of a free, 14-part lecture series, “500 Years of Baldwin County History”, which was videotaped and later distributed to local schools and libraries as an ongoing educational resource.

The Friends of ESILL also helps us keep tuition low and affords members fellowship with our directors, students and instructors. For an annual membership fee of $35, you will enjoy course flyers mailed to your home, newsletters to keep you abreast of events, and invitations to receptions featuring guest lecturers where you may share your ideas with Board members and instructors. To show our appreciation for your support, we provide a $5 discount on any courses you and your immediate family members take in that calendar year. Join the Friends of ESILL and give your backing to one of Fairhope’s unique institutions. To get on the ESILL team, click on the link below or call Dot Bremer at 604-9342.
