Summer Registration Open House
OLLI brochures for summer events are on their way to your mailboxes this week. The brochure can also be viewed immediately online from the link at the bottom of this page.
Please mark your calendars to attend the OLLI Summer Registration Open House on Wednesday, May 3, from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. in the Michel Student Center Ballrooms.
Free park-and-ride shuttle service from Westminster Presbyterian Church on Moss Avenue will be provided starting at 8:00 a.m. Doors will open and numbers for the queue will be handed out at 8:40 a.m. We highly encourage you not to arrive before 8:15 a.m.
During the Registration Open House, you'll have the chance to interact one-on-one with staff, learn more about OLLI programming, provide ideas for future classes, trips, and study groups, and have the chance to take home brochures to distribute to area businesses. Most of all, feel free to enjoy snacks and refreshments, and spend some time with your friends (or meet some new ones). Registration forms received at this event will be processed first.
On Thursday, May 4, starting at 9:00 a.m., mail and telephone registration opens. Please note: you may mail your form at any time after receiving the brochure (which is also available online). Forms will be queued in the order received and processed on this date.
We continue to work to solve the problems with our online registration system. Please know that as of today, staff is still facing frustrating issues with our vendor that may derail online registrations for summer. We thank you for your patience and want you to know despite these problems, your registrations will be processed in an orderly and fair way!
Trivia Night Fundraiser - Thank You!
Thank you to everyone who participated in OLLI's Second Annual Trivia Night Fundraiser! We had a swell time "at the hop," testing our trivia knowledge, enjoying good company and food, winning fabulous raffle prizes, and even hula hooping!
The event was a huge success, raising over $8,000 -- nearly triple the funds from last year's inaugural trivia event! We feel very fortunate to receive such overwhelming support from our members, an anonymous matching donor, and our sponsors.
For their generous contributions to the event, we would like to thank our signature sponsor, Cypress Asset Management, and our supporting sponsors, Health Alliance Medicare, Heartis Senior Living Village, Heddington Oaks, and Thrivent Financial.
We also appreciate the prize donations from the following: Bradley University Athletics, Bradley University Alumni Association, Bogie's Bar and Grill, Childers Eatery, Denhart Baking Company, Holland's Caramel Corn, J. Draper Glass, J.K. Williams Distillery, Java Jolt, Kelleher's Irish Pub and Eatery, Kickapoo Creek Winery, Landmark Theaters, Mackinaw Valley Vineyard, Obed & Isaac Brewery, Peoria Riverfront Museum, The Spotted Cow, Thyme Restaurant, Toraason Glass, The '50s Diner, and The Fieldhouse.
