"My wife, Pat, and I have been part of OLLI since its inception and we continue to
find the social interaction, travel possibilities and continuing education opportunities

Jim Harris, OLLI Charter Member
"My husband and I have found OLLI to be a fulfilling and economic answer to our need
to experience and learn about subjects in which we have long been interested, yet
