The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Western Michigan University will host our second A Taste of OLLI 2022 (A Feast for Your Brain). Eager learners aged 50+ are invited to come with one or two non-member friends. This free event offers a very special introduction to the purpose, courses, trips, events, and volunteer opportunities of OLLI. A continental breakfast of beverages and pastries will be served. You will have the opportunity to meet our fall instructors and learn about their courses. There will also be the opportunity to sample a variety of OLLI courses in 30-minute mini-classes. The sessions will repeat so everyone has a chance to attend three of them. We will also accept donations for our community outreach organization, the Kalamazoo Literacy Council. A list of items they need can be found here:
