Welcome back to the CCR 2023 Fall Semester! It’s time to register and get involved in all the exciting events we have planned this year. Keep reading…This is a long one 🙂

As your new CCR president, I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity to serve. I’ll do my best to fill Fred’s shoes, and I’d like to thank him for his years of dedication to CCR.

I’d also like to thank the outgoing board members, Cheryl Wood, Del Sisson, Jimmy Gapusan, and Sylvia Gamboa, for their hard work and dedication. They’ve made a real difference in our community, and we’re all so grateful for their service.

So what’s happening this year? Well, you can start by checking out the 2023 Fall Schedule. Our Monday meetings will resume on September 11th at 1PM and 2:30PM, with a social break in between. They’ll be held in the conference space of ECPI University, 3800 Paramount Drive, North Charleston, 29405. Hey, members! Don’t forget to register

Next, review the exciting lineup that CALL has on offer.  The Catalog of Classes is online and CALL class registration has begun! Remember, in addition to attending CALL classes, you also can volunteer to teach a course. If you have expertise in a topic you’d like to share, please email

This year, the Service in Action Committee has adopted Reading Partners. By volunteering with their organization, our members will have the opportunity to read with elementary school children every week. And in September and October, we’ll collect school supplies to support teachers and students. A list of what they need will come out soon! SIA is a new committee that has had a lot of success in its first year. New members are welcome, and we’d love to hear your ideas for projects that help others in our community. Want more information? Join us and become a member by registering online.

Did you realize we already have Trips and Tours scheduled? There is an upcoming tour of Joint Base Charleston AND an event around PURE Theatre’s production of ATWATER with more to come. Be sure to come to the next meeting on Monday, September 11 to find out more.

Finally, don’t forget about our Book Group! The group meets at 1pm every first Wednesday in Meeting Room A at the Charleston Main Library, 68 Calhoun Street, Charleston 29401.

Well, I hope that’s caught you up. If you are not a member already, please join us and I hope to see you soon!

Looking forward to it–
