Spring 2016 OU Schedule
This Thursday, March 10, at First Presbyterian Church, our lunch speaker will be Adam Goehle, ESL Teacher, presenting Total Immersion in Istanbul. Lunch begins at noon and the talk starts at 12:30.
Due to a funeral at First Presbyterian Church, we will NOT have the noon lunch speaker this Thursday, March 3rd. The courses at 9:45 and 11:00, as well as the Feldenkrais class at 1:30, will meet as usual.
Our speaker for this day, Brett Bonda from Richmond Ballet, will be speaking during our spring session at both St. Luke and St. Mary. Be sure to catch him then!
Good Day Everyone!
There is the possibility of inclement weather on Monday, February 15. Monday is also Presidents’ Day and the city schools are closed, so we do not have their decision to determine whether we are closed. So this is our inclement weather plan for Monday:
We are keeping our eye on the forecast and will make a decision Sunday evening. This decision will be posted on our website. If we are closed, it will also appear on the scroll of the local television stations.
Stay warm over the next couple of days and check on your older neighbors! -Julie
So sorry – This is the truly correct correction!

(Note to self – Don’t make corrections before you finish your first cup of tea! – The E.D.)
Have a wonderful day and enjoy the warmer weather while it’s here!

Art Gunlicks, Chair of our Education Committee, asked us to share this flyer about a “Teach-In” being offered to educate our community on the Refugee Crisis. Art announced it at the Open University Thursday and it was suggested that we share this with our members. The following link provides all the information on this free event.
