Grandma Jo's Adventure: Travel Blog by an OLLI Member


OLLI Past President, Joanne Haupt, keeps a travel blog - a great way to document and share her adventures!

This spring, Joanne took a 4-month-long cruise around the world, and visited Spain, Greece, Panama, Guatemala, Japan, China, Jordan, India, Hawaii, and many more!  She included beautiful photos from her whole adventure, along with faithful descriptions that give the reader a sense of what it was really like. 

Welcome home, Joanne, and thank you for sharing your experiences with us!  Visit Grandma Jo's Adventure blog by clicking here.

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.
