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.

Due to the impending snow, it is with much sadness that we announce that there will be no Lunch and Life program at St. Mary Catholic Church tomorrow, Wednesday, January 17th. Forecasters say that it will start snowing overnight and continue for most of the day: “Richmond could see the snow stop as early as noon, but it may not clear out of the metro area entirely until 5 p.m.” (John Boyer, Richmond.com/weather).
The good news is that Randy and Barbara Fitzgerald will be giving their presentation, “Flights to Fancy” on Thursday, February 1 at First Presbyterian Church (4602 Cary Street Road). Lunch begins at noon and their talk begins at 12:30 pm. We hope you can join us then!
Take care and please stay safe – Julie
Are you ready for the Winter Session of the OU??? The first day of classes is THIS MONDAY, January 15th and yes, it is Martin Luther King Day, but we will be meeting that day to start eight weeks of learning, sharing, and having a whole lot of fun! We hope you will join us.
There have been a few changes since the schedule was first posted on the website and hit your mailboxes. Let me list them here:
- Beginning French will be offered on Thursdays at 11:00 am at First Presbyterian. This is an 8-week course offered by Ron Haizlip, who taught this same course this past Fall.
- The Lunch Speaker on Thursday, January 18, at First Presbyterian, will be Bill Lohmann presenting, “On the Road Again: More People, Places and Pie Around Virginia.” This replaces August Wallmeyer’s talk on “The Extremes of Virginia.” We hope to have Mr. Wallmeyer present in the Spring Session.
- The date of Jeffrey Hill’s lunch presentation was printed incorrectly. The date that should be there is 3/5 (not 2/26).
Changes are bound to happen, so we encourage you to look at the schedule on the Open University tab on our website for the most up-to-date version. But since you have subscribed to our website, you can click RIGHT HERE to get the latest, correct schedule for Winter 2018.
We are looking forward to a great session. Remember to tell your friends – Julie
Good snowy morning to everyone! Hope you are safe and warm. Just wanted you to know that we are not physically in the office today, but are checking phone and email messages throughout the day.
Take good care and enjoy the view out your window! – Julie
