Take a moment to see what is happening at OLLI South.
On June 16th we gathered to celebrate the wonderful OLLI South facilitators. It was the first time in three years we were able to get together in-person. It was a wonderful time. We had around 60 people join us at Columbine United Church for brunch. A big thank you to Peggy Winn, Becky Stout for organizing the event. And a thank you to Sandy Wischmeyer, Mary Ann Lang, Sherilee Selby, Christine Liptak and Darcey VanWagner for assisting with the food and setup.
Lunch and Learn
Please join us on Tuesday 11:45 am - 12:45 pm for Lunch and Learn. We have some fantastic speakers lined up. These are free events. Feel free to bring a friend.
OLLI South is always looking for new facilitators!
Facilitators are the very heart of our OLLI program. OLLI is successful because every term we have an intriguing curriculum and a "faculty" of dedicated people volunteering their time to make it happen.
If you are interested in finding out more about facilitating at OLLI South, please contact the current Curriculum Committee Chair.
