Sedona: 928.649.4275 • Verde: 928.649.5550 www.yc.edu/lifelonglearners
Welcome to Your OLLI As vice-chair of the OLLI Verde Council, I would like to invite you to explore our catalog of learning groups, presentations and workshops that are offered during the spring term. You will find a wide variety of opportunities to learn and make new friends, both on the Clarkdale campus and the Sedona campus. The catalog explains the three categories of membership that have been designed to meet your needs, all of them at a very reasonable cost. If cost is an issue, we hope that you will explore taking advantage of the OLLI financial aid program. Membership in OLLI involves much more that taking classes. Members receive access to the Yavapai College Library, discounts on “Edventures,” and other special social and cultural events. Members can also facilitate classes for other OLLI members.
Welcome to our OLLI Family Take a class, five classes, or any combination of classes and get ready to learn in a stimulating and nurturing atmosphere. We guarantee your brain will be happy and that you will make new friends. Please offer us your ideas and consider OLLI your new intellectual home. Warmly, Anne Crosman, Chair, OLLI Sedona Council
OLLI is shaped by its membership. Members make most of the decisions regarding how OLLI operates and is only as good as the involvement, creativity, and dedication of people like you. As you can see by examining the catalog, OLLI is a real gem in Sedona and the Verde Valley. We hope that you will consider how you can do your part to keep OLLI a vital educational and cultural organization in our communities. Sy Brandon, Vice-chair, OLLI Verde Council
Happy Spring! We, the staff at OLLI of Sedona and the Verde Valley, are here to serve you. We hope that you enjoy the exciting offerings that are available this term. They are a reflection of the passions of the hearts and minds of your fellow neighbors and friends in Sedona and the Verde Valley. There is an expression in Latin that is befitting of OLLI, “mens sana en corpore sano”- a healthy mind in a healthy body. At OLLI of Sedona and the Verde Valley, we offer opportunities to expand the mind as well as the body. Whether you decide to take a philosophy or a politics class, or decide to try out belly dancing or yoga, there is something here for everyone to enjoy. As an added benefit, many OLLI members make lasting friendships nurtured by coming together and sharing common interests. Again, we do hope that you enjoy your term. If there is anything that staff can do to facilitate your experience, or if you have any suggestions for a learning group or a workshop, please do not hesitate to contact us in Sedona at 928-649-4275 or in Clarkdale at 928-649-5550. Forever learning, The OLLI staff of Sedona and the Verde Valley Natalia Molina McKendry, Director Diane Phelps, Assistant Coordinator Ginger Lindquist, Assistant Coordinator Kate Kline, AARP, Assistant, Verde campus Karen Waymire, AARP, Assistant, Sedona campus
