Every semester, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at WMU offers a number of events where members and instructors are able to meet and talk in an informal atmosphere.


January Thaw

Wednesday, January 16, 1 to 3 p.m.
Center Point Church
2345 North 10th Street, Kalamazoo


OLLI members, instructors, nonmembers, friends of members and members of the community are all invited to the January Thaw on January 16, 2019, from 1 to 3 p.m. If Mother Nature does not cooperate and January 16 doesn’t thaw, then we will hold the event on January 23 at the same time and same place. Here are the details:
The 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in Michigan is in 2019. Virginia Paganelli Caruso will give us an entertaining and informative presentation on how they did it with 68 years of agitation, education and organizing and what the state and federal requirements for voting were at various times during that period.
Book Swap
Every year the book swap is wildly popular, and many members go home with treasures of new-to-them books!  Bring up to five books which can be fiction or non-fiction, but please no textbooks or Reader’s Digest condensed books. There is no limit on the number you take home.
School Supply Donation
As there is at all our OLLI events, there will be an opportunity to make donations of school supplies to the Kalamazoo Literacy Council. Any types of school supplies are welcome.
How to Register
Watch for your email invitation so you don’t miss out on the chance to learn about OLLI courses and trips, to discover the abundant volunteer opportunities, get information on how you can become a member or continue your membership as well as enjoy refreshments and socialize with friends.
