OLLI Classes

If you’re fortunate enough be age 50 and over, you are eligible to sign up for OLLI classes! The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at the University of Denver is a membership program designed for men and women age 50 and over, who wish to pursue lifelong learning in a relaxed non-competitive atmosphere. There are no tests, no grades, no academic requirements – just a desire for learning and a penchant to be curious. For $100, you can take as many classes as you like, and scholarships are available. The “West Side” classes are offered at Jefferson Unitarian Church and Shepherd of the Hills Presbyterian Church.

Golden in the 1950s

Here’s a hot tip for readers and Golden history lovers: Gene Child, one of the founders of the Golden Landmarks Association in 1972, and Barb Warden, publisher of and author of three books about Golden, will team teach a class called “Golden – Where the West Lives.” The class will happen on Mondays from 1-3, March 28 – May 2, and will feature fascinating lectures and fun field trips.

OLLI is holding an Open House/Registration session tomorrow (Mon 2/22) from 10AM-1PM at the Jefferson Unitarian Church (14350 W 32nd Ave – map). You don’t have to attend the open house to register (you can mail in a form), but some classes fill up early.
