A Fantastic Lecture for You!

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

French Class Annual Can Can Visit

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!

French Can Can 2018

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

OU Lunch Speaker Announcements

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
