Fall Wrap-Up and Winter Registration Opens October 29  

Please plan to attend OLLI's Fall 2014 Class Wrap-Up Meeting on Wednesday, October 29 from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. in the Michel Student Center Ballrooms at Bradley University.  During that meeting, we will evaluate the content of each course, determine what classes should be repeated, and discuss the four sessions overall.  Plenty of refreshments will be provided as we discuss the results of our Fall lineup.

Parking will be available in the Main Street Parking deck (on Main Street, adjacent to the Renaissance Coliseum).  The OLLI shuttle will be available beginning at 8:30 a.m. to transport you from the parking deck to the Michel Student Center.

At the conclusion of the Wrap-Up Meeting, we will begin the one-hour Winter 2015 Registration Open House.  Brochures will be passed out at 11:00 a.m., and members of the Continuing Education staff will be on hand to process your registrations. We'll have plenty of snacks on hand, and the shuttle will be available to transport you back to the parking deck until 12:15 p.m.

If you prefer to register online, the registration site will be "live" at 2:00 p.m. that same day. If you prefer to wait until you receive your catalog in the mail, please note that the 7,000+ brochures are delivered via bulk mail on October 29.

Thank you for your continued interest in our OLLI programs!

OLLI Fundraiser at Kickapoo Creek Winery

OLLI Fundraiser at Kickapoo Creek WineryNearly 150 people celebrated OLLI’s 20th birthday by attending its special fundraiser event on Friday, August 29 at Kickapoo Creek Winery.

The fundraiser was developed to help OLLI continue its tradition of unique, high quality, engaging, and educational programming. Participants spent a beautiful afternoon taking behind-the-scenes tours of the winery with owner (and fellow OLLI member) Dr. David Conner, partaking in wine tastings, enjoying appetizers on the patio, and enjoying the music of the Bradley University Jazz Combo.

After a delicious dinner (which was briefly interrupted by a late summer thunderstorm), participants were entertained by local comedian Rex Havens, who had everyone in stitches with his insightful observations about the hilarious miscommunication that populates our personal lives. In addition, Rex made a generous donation to OLLI by giving all proceeds of his book and compact disc sales to the fundraising effort.

OLLI thanks Rex and our other generous sponsors, Bill Kwon of the Kwon Gallup Group at Morgan Stanley, and Dr. Conner of Kickapoo Creek Winery, for making this first-ever event such a success.

Over the past two years, member donations allowed OLLI to purchase two shuttles and provide Lectures and Cinema programs for free. This year, our fundraising efforts will focus on improving the audio-visual equipment and technology services for OLLI Classes, Study Groups, Cinema, Learning Trips, and Lectures.

For more information about annual or planned giving, please contact Janet Lange, Executive Director of Continuing Education, at lange@bradley.edu.
