There were a LOT of pictures we didn't have room to include in the 2017 Fall issue of OLLI Expressions.
Here's your chance to view what you missed!
First of all, there was the Front Cover.
The picture's title is "Amaryllis Amazement." Janet Rodgers Bennett, the artist of the water color painting, said of the picture and her experience at OLLI,
"This painting captures the beauty of amaryllis and my amazement that they thrive in my garden. I joined OLLI in 2012 after moving to Hattiesburg from Wallingford PA upon retirement.
The art classes at OLLI, led by such talented teaching artists, have opened up a wonderful world for me in retirement. The Peck House and beautiful gardens provide a great environment
for socializing and continued learning."
Page 2 has the Director's Post from Brett Harris and the President's Post from Betty Dettre. To see what they

article and pictures about Special Interest Groups (SIGs) by Carolyn Crosby, and Dallas Gorbett's article tells
