Good Summer Everyone!
I miss seeing you all at the Open University and Lunch and Life. I hope everyone is enjoying themselves and keeping cool in the humidity (and dry in the rain!). Since you may not be in classes right now, I would like to share a lecture that I attended at another lifelong learning program about a month ago. It is eye-opening. Do yourself a favor and watch it. Take good care – Julie
Click here to see Dr. Bill Thomas talk about living in an ageist society.
This morning, Susie Wiltshire’s French class gathered for what has become their annual end of the year celebration. Yours truly was a guest (and the one behind the camera!) and I thoroughly enjoyed myself and got to experience their magic time together. What a great group of people!
The Open University starts up again in the fall, on September 17, 2018. Don’t you want to learn French too (or German, or Spanish, or Latin, or Russian, or Japanese)?!? You know you do – Julie
Would you like to hear a pretty incredible story? Then join us Monday, May 21st, to hear Curtis Monk, president and CEO of The Community Idea Stations, share with us about his personal experience being a heart transplant recipient. He will speak at 12:30 pm at St. Luke Lutheran, 7757 Chippenham Parkway. Come at noon and bring a sandwich. Coffee and cake will be available. I’m going to be there – hope you will be too!
And, we have a lunch speaker schedule change for next Thursday, May 24, at First Presbyterian. Due to unforeseen circumstances, Maria Howard will not be speaking about Warm Weather Exercises at lunch. Instead, we welcome James Garton, Associate Wellness Director at the Tuckahoe YMCA, who will speak on Wellness and Fitness for Seniors, at 12:30 pm. Again, join us at noon and bring a sandwich.
It’s the last week of the OU. Come see everyone before summer begins – Julie
Come to lunch Monday and hear Deirdra McAfee and Betty Joyce Nash, award-winning writers, editors and teachers, talk about their literary anthology, Lock and Load: Armed Fiction. It is a collection of contemporary stories about America’s guns, a collaboration filled with action, suspense and fun. Note: This presentation is not associated with any recent gun issues.
We hope to see you there – Julie
Tomorrow is President’s Day and many things will be closed – but not Open University! We will meet tomorrow, February 19, at St. Luke Lutheran.
And stay for lunch to hear our speaker, Shahan Mufti, assistant professor in journalism at the University of Richmond, present, The Faithful Scribe: A Story of Islam, Pakistan, Family, and War.
