KIT (Keep in Touch)

The OLLI office will be closed this Thursday and Friday, Nov. 24 and 25.

Happy Thanksgiving!

 

  • SC 213, HIV/AIDS in America, at 10 AM on November 29, has space for additional OLLI members and their guests. OLLI member Bobi Keenan, a clinical research nurse, will explain the history and research of this epidemic and UCI’s role. The facilitators and anyone who is interested will meet for coffee/lunch and continued conversation after the class. No need to contact the facilitators – just show up to the class next Tuesday.
  • Help design a brief survey for OLLI members.  An OLLI sub-committee would like help in designing and conducting a brief survey of our members. If you have experience and can advise, and possibly assist, please contact Bill Thomas (email: carolenbill@cox.net, phone: 949-644-5029). Thank you.
  • Special Discussion Class on Current Issues. The Social Science Committee will hold a pilot class on current issues from noon to 2 PM on Thursday, December 8, in the Woodbridge Onken Classroom. Seeing a particular need from OLLI members, Peggy Maradudin, Rob Alen, and Jonathan Weil will lead this group. We will use a variety of formats (such as open discussion and the PBS format of Washington Week in Review) to discuss international and national events. Bring your lunch if you like.

 

  • Coming up at the University Club Forum, co-sponsored by OLLI: Claudia Kawas, MD, UCI School of Medicine, will talk about Successful Aging: Lessons on the 90+ Study on Wednesday, Dec. 7. Buffet lunch begins at 11:15 AM and is $13 for OLLI members. For reservations, call 949-824-7960 or e-mail UClub@uci.edu. This will be the last Forum of the Fall. We will begin the Winter Forum on January 18, 2012. Look for the new schedule in the Spring catalog or on our blog at www.olliuci.wordpress.com.

 

 

  • Thanks to OLLI members: Capt. Bob Meyer of ABitofHome.org and a WW II veteran who spoke to the class last week, wanted to thank the class for their contributions toward mailing DVDs to wounded vets. His message: “Please give my thanks to the WW II class. I told the group I had 40 boxes of DVDs I could not send. They are now on the way to the wounded vets. I even had $5 left over for the next batch! Thanks so much. Capt. Bob Meyer.”
  • Do you know someone who would like to get our Spring catalog in the mail? Please reply to this e-mail with the name and mailing address and we will add them to the list. Spring catalogs will be mailed in mid-December and registration begins on January 3, 2012.

 

  • Just posted on the OLLI blog: the class presentations from the Global Water class, SC 201.

 

  • Introducing Club OLLI: A new group organized to bring some social activities to OLLI at UCI. The next meeting will be at 1 PM on Wednesday, November 30, in the Woodbridge Onken Classroom.
