Winter Course Proposals
Contribute your knowledge, skills and passion to the OLLI learning community! Your course can make a positive impact on the OLLI membership. Help maintain this diverse and enriching experience by submitting a proposal for your Winter course. Art, Nature, Dance, Language. There's an OLLI member who wants to know more about what you can bring to them. Courses can run from two to ten sessions and usually last from one to two hours. Support is available for you as you submit your proposal, build your course, and learn the classroom and Zoom technology. We are taking proposals now through the end of August, and Winter term starts Monday, January 8th. Select this link to access the Winter course proposal form. Make a difference by bringing your course to the Rogue Valley and beyond.

OLLI Open House a Success. Thank You!
This year's OLLI Open House was a huge success with 700+ attendees! Such a turnout would not have been possible without the planning and organizing efforts of OLLI's Communications and Community Outreach Committee and the amazing fleet of volunteers who showed up to help! Attendees were welcomed and assisted as they made the circuit of tables offering information about OLLI courses, SOU and community partners' programs, door prizes, refreshments, and OLLI registration. Energy was high, and participants enjoyed learning about what OLLI has to offer, as well as making connections with our many community partners and sponsors. Click here for photos of the event taken by OLLI member Richard Simonds and click here for the winners of the eight great door prize bundles. Thank you to all who participated!
