Scones + Your Ideas = Curriculum Come to Life

OLLI Curriculum Committee Meeting
Wednesday, May 9
9:00 -11:00 a.m.
Peoria NEXT Innovation Center, 801 W. Main, Peoria

We know you love our famous scones, and you know we love your ideas, so attending the Curriculum Committee meetings is a win-win for everyone!   

Tomorrow morning (May 9), we'll meet at Peoria NEXT to wrap-up our last two class seasons and start brainstorming for our Fall lineup.  Peoria NEXT is located at 801 W. Main Street, and has plentiful, free parking behind the building.

This meeting is always an engaging session with refreshments and wonderful conversation.  All OLLI members are invited and encouraged to suggest classes that you've always hoped would be considered or to encourage a repeat of a past offering. 
Keith Butterfield
Chair, Curriculum Committee

Where Have You Gone?  Look Where I Went!

Look Where I Went has become one of OLLI's most popular classes each Spring and Fall season.  The class allows four different presenters to take you on their journeys around the world as they share what they learned and experienced.

We've had presentations about an around-the-world cruise, trips to Laos and Southern China, adventures across the TransAmerican Trail, a visit to Poland, and more.

If you've gone somewhere and would like to share what you learned, please email John  Dust, an OLLI volunteer who coordinates this class, at waywardpilot@aol.com

We can't wait to hear more about our members' travels!

Highlights of the trip include spectacular Alpine vistas; an unforgettable train ride through the Alps on the Glacier Express; a Mozart dinner concert at the centuries-old St. Peter's Restaurant in Salzburg; Germany's Bavarian capital of Munich; and the world-renowned Passion Play, hosted by the quaint village of  Oberammergau.
Due to the immense worldwide popularity of the event, we must book our reservations two years in advance!
