OLLI Course Book

Fall 2011 Course Book Looking Ahead Looking into the future is a risky business. Most of us are ambivalent because we do and don’t want to know what’s going to happen; we have mixed emo ons of wan ng to be prepared, dreading personal, poli cal or natural disaster and hoping to make a posi ve difference. This fall, several OLLI programs will focus on ideas and ac ons that will affect us all in the near and far future. Of special interest is “Exploring the 2012 Elec ons” led by well-known veteran poli cal scien sts Drs. Lief Carter and Robert Grafstein. Few would disagree that in the current poli cally polarized atmosphere voters need all the insight they can get into the problems facing our country. In addi on to commen ng on important issues and candidates’ campaigns, the class will consider the impact of the U.S. electoral system. Dr. Carter will also speak at a Lunch and Lecture on “Whyy p It’s Time to o Rewrite the Cons tu on.” He will address the proposi roposi on that “the U.S. Cons tu on, a remarkable document ocument when created over 200 years ago, no longer long serves our ccountry well.” A subject of cri cal concern is “America’s Economic Future,” Futur which will be presented by Dr. Richard Bouldin, UGA GA professor professo and author of Mathema cs with Applica ons to o Business, Economics and Social Studies. In these uncertain economic mes with high unemployment and shaky recoveryy from recession, understanding the “new normal” in a global economy influences both individual inves ng and public ublic policy. Also with economic implica ons, a Lunch and Learn asking king “Does High Speed Rail Make Sense in the U.S.?” will be moderated by Dr. Keith Poole, whose research includes the poli cal-economic history of railroads. This is especially relevant with the current planning for high-speed rail iin Atlanta and the ongoing discussion of rail from Athens to Atlanta.

From a different viewpoint, Dr. Be y Jean Craige, director emeritus of the Willson Center for Humani es and Arts at UGA, will discuss “The Future of Humans in the Global Bio c Community.” How people interact with the rest of nature has profound consequences for human health and the environment. For a change from looking ahead, looking to the past at Halloween will offer seasonal facts and fun at Elizabeth Warner’s “Witches and Pumpkins and Cats, Oh My!” The course will include origins and symbols, spells and po ons and conclude with an All Hallows lunch at the re red English and Communica ons professor’s “catacombs.” Maybe someone will bring a crystal ball! “I just con nue to be amazed at the exper se and coopera on we get from these presenters,” says Jeani Goodwin, OLLI curriculum chairman. “I’m astounded at what they have accomplished in their lives and that they volunteer to share their knowledge with us.” To check out these programs and others, detailed class descrip ons are in this course book and on the website, www.olli.uga.edu.

OLLI@UGA Q&A: Fall 2011 How are course fees determined? All courses have a fee of $5.00 per class session. If the course is held at the Central Presbyterian Church (CP) or the Athens Community Council on Aging (CA), there is an addi onal $1.00 per class session facility use fee. When taking classes at River’s Crossing, you must pay to park ($2.00 per day per vehicle parked).

What happens if I register for a class and it is cancelled? When a class is cancelled, class members will be no fied. At that me, you may indicate whether you would like a refund or if you would like to donate your class fees to OLLI@UGA. Because parking fees are separate, you must turn in your parking tags to the OLLI office in order to receive a refund for the parking fees.

I’ve already paid for my parking tags, but forgot them at home; why do I have to pay again for another one? OLLI @ UGA pre-pays for EVERY parking tag it receives. This represents a significant cost to the organiza on. We suggest checking with a fellow classmate to see if one can be borrowed and then replaced at the next class session or you may stop by the OLLI office to purchase a new one and use the one you forgot for a future class.

Why did my friends receive their brochure in the mail before I did? We mail all brochures through the United States Postal Service Bulk Mail Unit on the same day. If you hear that brochures are out, you can access the online brochure at www.olli.uga.edu.

Why aren’t classroom numbers listed in the course book? We discovered that room changes occur frequently. Our updated schedule is always posted on the OLLI Board just inside of River’s Crossing.

Are scholarships available to OLLI members? Yes, due to the generosity of the late Carol Fisher, a tui on fund is available. Members are eligible for up to $100 assistance/semester for classes, Lunch and Learn, and Lunch and Lecture programs. Contact Katy Crapo at 706-542-5011 or kcrapo@uga.edu. All requests are kept confiden al.

How can I volunteer? As a member-led organiza on, OLLI@UGA depends on its volunteers for many things. We have all kinds of volunteer opportuni es. To volunteer, contact Ann Darby, the Volunteer Coordinator (annmdarby@bellsouth. net or 706-543-7995), any Board Member or Commi ee Chair, or Zu (zreuter@uga.edu) or Katy (kcrapo@uga.edu).

What if a friend wants to join me for a Lunch and Learn, Lunch and Lecture, or Travel/Study trip? Membership has its privileges; however we will allow a current member to bring a guest to one of these events, if space is available. The fee will be the same that the OLLI member pays.

Alphabetic Course Listing with Descriptions Lunch and Learn Course #LLRN 101 EvoluƟon of Engineering at the University of Georgia Brahm Verma Monday, September 19, 2011 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM Trumps Catering 1 session $20

He received his BS, MS, and PhD degrees in agricultural engineering. Since 1965 he has over 350 publica ons and presenta ons at professional mee ngs. He has published on similitude in engineering; mechaniza on/automa on of greenhouse, plant nursery and agricultural systems; modeling biological systems using ar ficial intelligence techniques; and decision methodology. Since the mid-1980’s he has championed for the emerging discipline of biological engineering and served as the founding president (1995-97) of the Ins tute of Biological Engineering (IBE) – A Society for Advancing “Biology-Inspired” Engineering.

Evolu on of Engineering at the University of Georgia History of engineering at the University of Georgia has had a convoluted path. UGA was the first to offer a civil engineering degree in 1868 and then formed a college of science and engineering with degrees in all major engineering disciplines. During the 1930’s depression, all engineering degrees (except agricultural engineering) were transferred to Georgia Tech (established in 1885). In 1977, Dr. Verma began an ac ve campaign to build a “school/college” of engineering at UGA. Even at a me when UGA added a new degree program in biological engineering, there was no tangible progress on building comprehensive engineering at UGA. Then in 1999, an innova ve concept for a new kind of engineering school (Faculty of Engineering) was proposed. It soon became one of the strategic ini a ves of the University for the First Decade of the 21st century, thanks to Provost Karen Holbrook who championed the new vision. On October 1, 2001, The Faculty of Engineering was established. This presenta on will give the historical, educa onal and poli cal context that inspired the conceptualiza on of the new academic organiza on and an implementa on path. A summary of key events/achievements will show the no ceable progress made towards building a first- er engineering program at UGA. Since the establishment of the Faculty of Engineering in 2001, the University of Georgia has added eight new degree programs in BioChemical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Computer Systems Engineering, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Electrical & Electronics Engineering. You must register for this Lunch and Learn by Monday, September 12, 2011. Brahm Verma is professor emeritus of biological and agricultural engineering and associate director emeritus of the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Georgia.

Does High Speed Rail Make Sense in the U.S.?

Pearl Harbor: December 7, 1941

Does it make sense to construct a high speed passenger rail system in the United States? This lecture will consist of a general discussion of lessons from the past and the future of railroad transporta on.

December 7 of this year (2011) marks the seven eth anniversary of the Japanese surprise a ack on Pearl Harbor on Oahu in the Hawaiian Islands. Prior to the a ack, Pearl Harbor was regarded as a key stronghold of American military power in the Pacific. However, on that day, it became the site of an enormous defeat for US naval and air forces on the island. Nevertheless, it was quickly reestablished as a military fortress, and, by the close of World War II, it was the most heavily defended harbor in the world.

You must register for this Lunch and Learn by Monday, October 31, 2011. Dr. Keith T. Poole is the Philip H. Alston Jr. Dis nguished Chair in the Department of Poli cal Science at the University of Georgia. He received his Ph.D. in Poli cal Science from the University of Rochester in 1978. In 2006, Professor Poole was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. His research interests include methodology, poli cal-economic history of American ins tu ons, economic growth and entrepreneurship, and the poli cal-economic history of railroads. He is the author or coauthor of over 50 ar cles as well as the author of Spa al Models of Parliamentary Vo ng (Cambridge University Press, 2005), a coauthor of Polarized America: The Dance of Ideology and Unequal Riches (MIT Press, 2006), Ideology In Congress (Transac on Press 2007), and Congress: A Poli cal-Economic History of Roll Call Vo ng (Oxford University Press, 1997).

This lecture will discuss the following points: 1) the establishment of Pearl Harbor as a military fortress in the decades prior to the Japanese carrier-based air a ack; 2) sequence of military and diploma c events leading up to the surprise a ack; 3) the events which unfolded during the a ack; and 4) the USS Arizona Memorial: its establishment and legacy. You must register for this Lunch and Learn by Monday, November 28, 2011. Mark Rich was a young boy in Chicago on December 7, 1941, and he well remembers listening with his family to the radio broadcasts on that “Day of Infamy” and on the days immediately following. He has been to Oahu on numerous occasions during the past decades, and he never fails to visit the USS Arizona Memorial. It is a fi ng and las ng tribute and reminder for his genera on, for those genera ons that have come since, and for those s ll to come.

The Lunch and Learn Series is held at Trumps Catering. See map on page 38.

Abe Lincoln: The Debate

African American Quilters in Northeast Georgia

Lincoln died in 1865. From the day of his death to today, academics, poli cians, Internet posters, and “Coffee Klatchers” con nue to use Lincoln to “prove” a point. Homosexuality, taxa on, gene c disorders, marriage, romance, economics, the usual “isms” (Conserva sm, Liberalism, Libertarianism, Marxism, Fascism), and on and on it goes. Lincoln is a onesize-fits-all vic m. Books are published every year presen ng these various arguments. This two hour course will be a “tour” of books (maybe some ar cles and/or speeches) on Lincoln, paying par cular a en on to the viewpoints of the authors and how their perspec ves tell us as much about ourselves and society as it tells us about Abraham Lincoln.

The area of northeast Georgia has a rich tradi on of quil ng within the African American community. In fact, it is the home of Harriet Powers, a woman born into slavery in 1831 who lived most of her life in Clarke County and whose quilts are in the collec ons of the Smithsonian Ins tu on and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. Diane Barret ‘s presenta on will focus on the fascina ng story of Ms. Powers as well as introduce the audience to other African American quilters whom she has come to know over the past twenty years. Their stories and their quilts give voice to a worldview that encompasses humor and pathos, joy and sorrow. Above all it is a world where community is valued and the quil ng frame becomes a place of sharing it all. The audience is encouraged to bring in quilts that they value and would like others to see.

Steve W. Schaefer, born in Missouri, received his first book on the 16th president from his aunt, a resident of Illinois, a.k.a., the “Land of Lincoln.” He was nine years old. This means that Schaefer has been collec ng Lincoln books for nearly 50 years. Along the way, he earned a degree in history from the University of Missouri, St. Louis; a Masters Degree in Library Science from Florida State University; and Specialist Degree in Library and Informa on Science from the University of South Carolina. He worked nearly forty years in public libraries, most recently as the director of the Uncle Remus Regional Library System. He re red in 2008 to spend more me reading about Lincoln and occasionally toying with other interests like Sherlock Holmes, the Algonquin Round Table, and illustrated versions of Dickens’ Christmas Carol.

Dr. Diane Barret is an ar st/art educator who earned her B.C.A. in pain ng from the University of North Carolina at Charlo e in 1982 and her Ed.D. in Art Educa on from the University of Georgia in 1992, specializing in the area of art for older adults. She has published numerous ar cles on this topic and has been an invited speaker at aging and art conferences on state, regional and na onal levels. She has directed 48 Grassroots Art grants at senior centers in northeast Georgia over the past seventeen years, directed an award winning Humani es grant through the Madison-Morgan Cultural Center in 1996, and has served as Senior Outreach Coordinator for the Georgia Museum of Art since 1992. Diane’s interest in African American quilters is an outgrowth of her exposure to these women in her classes around the northeast Georgia area. She presented lectures on Harriet Powers and African American quilters in several different venues. She was project director for the Harriet Powers Centennial Symposium in 2011 and served as curator for the exhibit, “Hands That Can Do: African American Quilters In Northeast Georgia” held at the Lyndon House Arts Center from October 2010 to January 2011.

Altamaha River Basin

America’s Economic Future: the New Normal

This course will feature an overview “portrait” of the OconeeOcmulgee-Altamaha river system, including history, current issues, and future prospects for the health of the river basin, the largest contained en rely within the state of Georgia. Athens, located at the forks of the Oconee River near the headwaters of the Altamaha River system, is now home to the burgeoning Oconee River Project of Altamaha River Keeper, Inc., which seeks to strengthen the protec on of the Oconee from its source in northeast Georgia to its confluence with the Ocmulgee River to form the Altamaha. In addi on to discussing the river system’s role in the development and early history of the state, this course will cover present-day stressors on river health, the status of efforts to protect the river system, and the future outlook for the river basin’s sustainability. Please note that this course may involve a field trip component, either hiking near or paddling on a local river.

The world economy is in transi on. China has become the second largest economy in the world and is growing rapidly while the economies of the developed countries are struggling. The American economy must make adjustments to these new reali es. Understanding our situa on is important to inves ng and to par cipa ng in public policy.

This course is limited to 25 parƟcipants. Ben Emanuel is the Oconee River Project Director for Altamaha River Keeper, Inc. He also works at Georgia River Network in Athens and serves on the Oconee Rivers Greenway Commission for the Athens-Clarke County government.

Apprecia ng Chairs: A Maker’s Perspec ve

Drawing More Than Flies

Chairs are one of the most symbolic and in mate furnishings that we encounter in social situa ons. This short introduc on is intended to acquaint par cipants with an introduc on to the work of some of the best known studio and commercial chair designers in the last 100 years. The highly illustrated presenta on focuses on product, the chairs themselves, and on process, an example of how a chair is constructed in a studio environment.

The first day of class will be a refresher on drawing, sketching in pencil, prac cing techniques on handling shading, depth, and vanishing points. Drawing will be part of each class, but we will be working in color in the mediums of watercolors and colored pencil. We will be working with differences in applica ons of the media and how they vary. Time will be spent achieving depth and dimension using shadowing with color and perspec ve. Time will also be spent on color mixing and making colors. Each week there will be homework. This is an in depth, hands on art course.

This course is limited to 30 parƟcipants. Dr. Tesser started building furniture as a hobby almost 40 years ago. In 1999, he re red from academe and became more serious about designing and building furniture. He dotes on the beauty of wood, celebra ng even the imperfec ons that might make a board special. However, wood by itself would languish without residing in a consciouslyconceived shape with just the right sensual curve; the inten onal juxtaposi on of contras ng species; the smoothed, well oiled surface. In the last few years his work has appeared in galleries, juried shows, and personal collec ons while images and stories about his work have appeared in a number of books, magazines, and news outlets. He occasionally lectures and teaches about the art of fine woodworking, which he has done several mes in the past for OLLI. “ Life is fun and interes ng,” he says, “but the opportunity to design and build furniture makes it even be er.”

Materials required: Ms. Roth will send out a materials list to registrants. A text is required: The Art of Basic Drawing: Collectors Series, by Walter Foster. It can be purchased from Amazon for $9.00 - $14.00. This course is limited to 30 parƟcipants. Ms. Roth studied fine and commercial art at Butler University (John Herron Art Ins tute), and Indiana University. She has worked as an illustrator for McGraw-Hill in St. Louis, MO; as an illustrator and colorist with Richmond-Gorman, Nebraska; and as the graphic art and design director for several adver sing companies.

His descrip on of his 1773-1777 sojourns in the South was visionary, fostering the development of a truly American strain of natural history, ornithology, and botany. His wri ngs transcended scien fic boundaries to deeply influence Coleridge, Wordsworth, and other Roman c poets. His text con nues to ignite the imagina ons of Southerners who love nature. This 3-day course will explore Georgia’s landscape, flora and fauna, and people as William Bartram saw them nearly 250 years ago. We will also examine how Bartram’s Travels helps us create a sense of place in the modern South. There will be an op onal two-day field trip at the conclusion of the course. Please see separate course lis ng. Dorinda G. Dallmeyer directs the Environmental Ethics Cer ficate Program at UGA.

Biology of Aging

Canadian Rockies

This presenta on will be a systema c survey of aging in the organs of the human body. Since the longevity of systems generally exceeds life expectancy, age-related declines and death are due to disease, abuse, or absence of use. Sugges ons for decreasing disease and increasing longevity will be included.

The Canadian Rockies extend from the U.S. border more than 900 miles northward through eastern Bri sh Columbia and western Alberta, covering more than 70,000 square miles. This rugged, glacier-covered landscape represents some of the most drama c scenery in North America. Much of the area is protected by Na onal Parks and a World Heritage Site. The Canadian Rockies straddle the North American Con nental Divide with peaks exceeding more than 13,000 feet in eleva on. In contrast to the U.S. Rockies, the Canadian range is composed mostly of layered sedimentary rocks (shale, sandstone, and limestone) that have been scraped off western geological terrains and thrust eastward over bedrock of the Alberta Plains during several pulses of tectonic growth. These correlated with different periods of plate tectonic ac vity along the western margin of North America during the last 200 million years. This course will examine the evolu on of the Canadian Rockies and describe processes involved in the forma on of its unique landforms. Topics will include ini al sedimentary deposi onal environments, structural geology and thrust mechanics, plate tectonic history, and glacial processes and landforms.

This course is limited to 30 parƟcipants. A $2 materials supply fee is included in the cost of the course to cover handouts provided by the presenter. Dr. Joseph Harris, a botanist with a research specialist in aging, was educated at Emory, the University of Georgia, the University of Chicago, and Duke (Ph.D.) He taught in the University of Wisconsin system and worked coopera vely on research projects at the Universi es of Texas, Tennessee, and North Carolina State which included studies in age reversal and DNA change. He has had more than forty reports appear in journals and books of interna onal significance. Professional reports and tutorials have been offered in Russia and China. He and his wife re red to Washington, Ga., from Stevens Point, Wisconsin.

David Dallmeyer is Emeritus Professor of Geology at the University of Georgia and a member of the Environmental Ethics Faculty. His teaching and research have focused on the processes and chronology of mountain building and plate tectonics with fieldwork on all con nents. He organized several research expedi ons in coopera on with the U.S. Antarc c Research Program and also has directed research programs in the Bri sh Isles, West Africa, China, Greenland, Svalbard, Norway, and the Andes of Chile and Peru. David served as director of a United Na ons (UNESCO) project that included organiza on of research excursions to Norway, Spain, Mauritania, France, and Japan. He is a frequent instructor for OLLI.

Caravaggio – The Bad Boy (and founder) of Baroque Art [Repeat of Summer Session] Michelangelo Merisi di Caravaggio astounded everyone who knew him – or his work. Patronized by Cardinals, Popes, and the head of the Knights of Malta, his altarpieces o en startled the groups who commissioned them – wouldn’t you be stunned to see the face of Rome’s best known pros tute presented as the Virgin Mary? He fled Rome a er killing a man over an argument about a bet on a tennis game and was pursued by the Pope’s police. But he s ll managed to paint giant works openly in Naples, Malta, and Sicily. And the only one he signed looks as though his signature is in his own blood. Who said the late 16th century was dull? Come learn more about the man and his work! A er Carolyn Abney received a BA in Humani es from Emory, she said reality set in: “That is, I needed a real job! A variety of business degrees and adventures later, I had the opportunity to go back to that first love - art history. I studied at the Courtauld Ins tute of Art in London. In Florence, I was able to study under Drs. Rab Ha ield and Jennifer Cook at Syracuse University as well as with John T. Spike, a Professor at the Va can and author of a reference book on Caravaggio. Since none of them can be in Athens this Fall, I’ll draw on what I learned to introduce you to the single painter whose name is men oned (so it is said) as o en as Rembrandt’s.”

Ciao, Italia This course will delve into Italian language, society and culture, family values, style, e que e and customs, rela onships and communica on, and vaca oning in Italy. Prisca Zaccaria, a classically trained mul -media ar st, was raised in the Tuscan hill town of Cortona, Italy. Having spent equal me studying and working in Italy and the U.S., Prisca has a deep apprecia on for the cultural nuances of her na ve and adop ve countries. She has used her knowledge of both cultures to establish businesses rela ng to the apprecia on of the Italian language, travel, and cultural aesthe cs. Prisca is currently Associate Director of Advancement Research for External Affairs at the University of Georgia. She is also an ar st specializing in Tuscan landscapes and children’s portraits, oil on canvas. Fall Courses by Category - continued from page 3

late 1930’s. Published in German, French & English, Baedekers became the most widely used travel guide for almost 100 years, giving rise to the phrase, “Kings and governments may err – but never Mr. Baedeker.” Baedekers’ Travel Guides are s ll printed today; however, other travel guides and the Internet have changed Baedekers’ dominance. We will discuss informa on found in the guides – involving poli cs, business, transporta on, excava on, humor and war. From the publica on of the 1896 Athens edi on - for the first modern Olympics - to Hitler’s demand that Baedeker publish a single Germany edi on in 1936 for the Berlin Olympics - when all the road names in Berlin had been changed by the Third Reich, you will learn about the travel guides of the 19th and 20th Centuries. Randall Abney holds a BBA degree from UGA and has been involved in many businesses over his career. From childhood, he worked in the family department store; built cable television franchises; started so ware companies and co-founded a company whose technology was awarded an academy award in 2009. And many of these businesses involved travel, which Randall loves. His wife, Carolyn, gave him a 1909 Baedekers guide to Italy 22 years ago for their honeymoon there, and they have been collec ng old travel guides ever since.

This one-hour session will present a summary of the benefits from an almost virtually undiscovered Veterans Affairs program. Approximately 1/3 of all Americans who are at least 65 should be eligible, though less than 5% are receiving the pension. Why? Because many don’t know about it. This pension, taxfree, for life, can make a difference in where and how a senior will live for his or her later years. This informa on is per nent as well for those who are caring for parents who may be eligible.

Special Interest Groups (SIGS) Beadiacs

Enjoy Opera in Athens

Mary Ann Kelly makelly@uga.edu 706-613-6311 Individuals interested in beading, stringing, and simple wire work will get together once a week for three hours or so to work on their projects, brainstorm ideas and help each other when our work takes an oops! Par cipants who have no experience but would just like to see what it’s all about are welcome because beaders are happy to provide basic informa on and demonstrate techniques.

Nancy Songster njsongster@charter.net 706.548.8181 Our purpose is to learn more about opera, a end OLLI classes on Opera, enjoy live opera performances in the Athens area, and a end the award winning Metropolitan Opera Live in HD broadcasts at Beechwood Cinemas and the CinemaOpera broadcasts at Carmike Theatres. We support UGA opera student produc ons, share informa on about opera via email, and offer a pre-opera luncheon or supper, where the UGA opera graduate students present informa on about the current Live in HD broadcast. We have a voluntary contribu on fund to cover the cost of the students’ lunches and their opera ckets, as well as program notes for the Met Opera broadcasts. The Met Opera broadcasts are on Saturday a ernoon, October through May, with an evening encore broadcast three weeks later. Email no ces are sent out about all produc ons. The Metropolitan Opera also broadcasts a summer encore series, tles, dates and mes to be announced.

Bicycling John Songster John.songster483@charter.net 706-548-8181 The interest group was organized in the summer of 2007 and started riding ac vi es in the fall. Over the past two years, more than fi y members have par cipated. The original theme s ll holds true. “For those who long to take the drudgery out of health club exercising or want to start a fitness program that perpetuates itself, a new opportunity to get back on a real bicycle is s ll available.” The health benefits of cycling are well known and Athens offers a wonderful environment for safe, fun biking. Although one may need to get some of the kinks out and polish riding skills, the ability to ride a bike is never lost once learned. The group will a end to those needs as well as help people get old bikes up and rolling again and advise them on new bike op ons. We also conduct “get started again” instruc on and introductory rides that will help par cipants develop their cycling growth to whatever level they wish to achieve. Local and nearby out-of-town rides over longer distances are organized during the year for those who enjoy socializing along with their pedaling. New fresh legs are especially welcomed.

Bonsai Claire Clements claireclements@charter.net 706.548.0211 Winnie Kelly 706.548.1418 The Bonsai interest group formed in the spring of 2003. This informal group meets on the 4th Thursday of each month, from 2:30 to 4:30 PM in the Brick Room at the ACCA on Hoyt Street. Bonsai, literally translated, means po ed tree. Members bring suitable plant materials to pot, and/or those already po ed, which they wish to trim, exhibit, or discuss. We have a small library of specialty books for members to borrow. We invite people from the community with relevant interests to come share with us. Field trips are made to a variety of places of interest to the group, that are within driving distance, where plants, plan ng materials and specialized tools may be purchased.

Book Discussion Group Diana Cerwonka drcerwonka@bellsouth.net 706.543.7780 The Book Discussion Group meets on the second Thursday of the month in the conference/boardroom (off the lobby of the administra on building) at the Council on Aging, 135 Hoyt Street, Athens, from 3:00-4:00 p.m. Books are selected by group members’ vote. Selec ons include fic on and nonfic on, contemporary and classic. Discussion is informal and par cipa on is encouraged. Please feel welcome to join us at any mee ng. Call or email Diana if you have ques ons or want more informa on.

Hand QuilƟng Sandy Jordan sandyjordan@charter.net 706.546.8537 The quil ng group meets on the first and third Tuesdays of the month from 1-3 PM all year. We meet at members’ homes and just do hand quil ng. We have room for interested persons wan ng to learn or those who already do hand quil ng.

Happy Hikers Iris Miracle happyhikers@yahoo.com 706.353.6711 If you love the great outdoors and hiking is a passion or an interest, then you will want to join this group. Hikes are short and long, easy to challenging, for fitness, fun and enjoyment of the marvels of nature. You can pick and choose as each hike is planned. We plan at least one hike a month, working up to more, if there is enough interest. There are many great hiking trails in and around Athens, but we will plan hikes to N.GA & other areas in GA. Perhaps some overnight hikes and even nearby states are possibili es. Come along, join this interest group and have fun while ge ng healthy exercise and enjoying the great outdoors.

Intermediate Bridge Kathy Kasarskis trukmk@aol.com 678-661-0038 This group meets on the first and third Wednesdays from 1:30 - 4:30 p.m. at the ACCA, 135 Hoyt St. If you are an experienced player and would like an a ernoon of cards without the fuss of se ng up tables, making snacks and drinks (coffee is available), we invite you to try our group.

InvesƟng Ron Cerwonka roncerwonka@bellsouth.net 706.543.7780 The Investment Group meets once a month to exchange informa on about inves ng and investments. Please note that this is not a group that plans investments for the group to make together. The group’s common denominator is a strong interest in exchanging informa on about the world of investments; no special knowledge of the field is needed. Individuals a ending are encouraged to bring any material(s) that they think would be of interest to other par cipants.

Mac Fan(aƟc)s Jim Kradel jkradel@gmail.com 706.410.1958 Hello to all you Mac owners. Our number grows each day. It is probably because of you that Apple has gone from 315 to 390 since the middle of June. We have been quiet this Summer, but Fall and Winter are coming, and we plan to get together and share ideas and how-tos. All new ideas and new members are welcome. Come one, come all.

MahJongg Heidi Naylor alpshv428@aol.com 706.850.5013 Do you already know how to play Mahjongg, or have you wanted to learn? I love to play and would love to find fellow fana cs – or future ones. Several groups have started on the east and west side of Athens. Let’s get together!

Novice Bridge Jimmie Hawes ollinovicebridge@gmail.com 706.850.1278 This group is for people who already know the basics of playing bridge, but have not played in a long me or have not played a lot. It is lovely to meet in a relaxed atmosphere, to gain experience playing the best game ever with great people just like you. This group meets at the Unitarian Universal Fellowship building, 780 Timothy Road, every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month from 1PM to 4PM. The playing fee is $3 per session.

OLLI DooWop Folk Singers Chip McDaniel Chip.silentdreams@gmail.com 706.549.2898 Songwriter/musician Charlo e “Chip” McDaniel wants to form a singing group SIG, the OLLI Doo Wop Folk Singers. Chip writes, “Let’s ‘Sing in the Sunshine’ and celebrate the music from the 1950’s-60’s. We’ll sing some of our favorites: ‘Sh-Boom,’ ‘If I Had A Hammer,’ ‘Where Have All the Flowers Gone?‘This Land is Your Land,’ and much, much more.” She would like the members to sing the favorite Golden Oldie of each member if possible, plus two new songs she is wri ng: ”We’re Having The Time of Our Lives” and “Wake Up And Smell the Sunshine.” She hopes the OLLI Doo Wop Folk Singers could sing at some of the OLLI socials and especially prepare for a miniconcert/sing-a-long for the 2013 OLLI Regional Conference to be held

“String of Pearls” Memoir WriƟng Group Roger Bailey Roger1731@charter.net 706.540.1068 Wri ng about our lives, we share our prose and poetry to learn more about ourselves and each other as we hope to write memoirs more effec vely in regard to both form and content.

We meet once a month in a member’s home, with the host/ hostess choosing a theme and/or menu. The rest of the members contribute a dish to share - appe zers, side dishes, salads, and desserts. We do love cooking, sharing good food and conversa on, and having fun. Each member takes a turn in hos ng. In January we had 10 members and in July we had grown to 30+. So far we’ve had pizza night with everyone making his/her own pizza, a burger extravaganza, a barbecue, Mexican, a cooking class with a real chef, Mediterranean, and a pool party. In the fall we’ll have three different dinner groups, and then we’ll all get together once a quarter for a big party with even more food. In September we will have a party to welcome new members so, if you’ve been thinking about joining, now is the me! Call Mar Edwards 706-705-1136 or email mriverwalk@bellsouth.net.
