    A Taste of OLLI: A Feast for Your Brain WMU-Fetzer Center
    2251 Business Ct., Kalamazoo MI 49008 USAWednesday, 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.Introducing non-members to OLLI. To meet the Osher Foundation membership expectations, we have established a goal of 1,000 members, but our membership currently is around 750. As a result, our OLLI committees have been working on ways to let other eager learners find out about OLLI. Although this event is planned especially for potential new members, we encourage you to be there with one or two non-member friends. Watch your July newsletter, the OLLI website, and your email for specific information regarding registration in July.
