There were a LOT of pictures we didn't have room to include in the 2017 Spring 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 "Looking for Nectar." Marcia Stanley, the artist of the color pencil drawing, said
the following about her experience at OLLI, "I came to OLLI through a good friend, Jane Hudson. She surprised
my husband and me with a year's membership to OLLI. It has changed my life. I started taking a Beginner Art
class taught by Brandi Downs and got hooked. I enjoy drawing and painting birds and flowers using colored pencils
and watercolors. I find OLLI to be an exciting time of learning and fellowship."
Page 2 has the Director's Post from Brett Harris and the President's Post from Wilber Chambers. To see what they
have to say, Click Here.
Page 3 has articles about Volunteerism by Nick Adams and Dallas Gorbett. (Watch
for the "V.")
Finally we're into the "meat" of the magazine with Pages 4 and 5.

The articles on pages 10 and 11 show the wide diversity of activities at OLLI. Come with us
as we build a "salad table," speak "poem-ese" and study the Gospels from a different perspective. Also, meet OLLI's librarian.
But, wait, there's more . . . See pictures we couldn't shoehorn into the printed magazine.
Building a Salad Table, Speaking Poem-ese, New Light on the Gospels and Marsha Hester, Librarian.
And let's not forget the Back Cover. See a light-hearted view of what it takes to be an OLLI member
