• OLLI - Let's Connect!

Let’s Connect! OLLI Online Conversations

FREE weekly chat via Zoom, on Fridays from 10-11 a.m.

Let’s Connect! is a place to see some friendly faces, share experiences and maybe learn a thing or two. Hopefully, there will also be some much needed laughter! By pulling together, we can try to make the best of a bad situation!

Tracey Barnes-Priestley will facilitate the conversation and will have a new topic of discussion for each week.


August 6:

Let’s catch up! What occupied your interest, time, and attention during July? It will be enjoyable to hear about how we each spent the month. And remember … new members are always welcome! Feel free to invite your friends to join us! 

August 13:

Who co-wrote and performed “Take Me Home, Country Roads?" And just what was it about? In this session we’ll discuss the worst and the best places you’ve ever lived! What makes each of them stand out in your memory?

August 20:

What does the future look like for you now? While we seem to be through the worst of the pandemic, looking forward continues to be filled with questions and a lingering degree of uncertainty. In this session we’ll look at how each of us is moving into our future lives.
