Let’s Connect! OLLI Online Conversations

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

These weekly sessions, which began early in the pandemic as a response to the isolation brought on by COVID-19, have grown to become a regular gathering of friendly and interesting people. Facilitated by Tracey Barnes-Priestley, this hour of conversation focuses on a new topic each week. It is time for us to share meaningful stories, thought-provoking experiences, and often, plenty of laughter. Please join us!
