Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at CSU, Chico
The Second Annual OLLI Play Festival
Delight in eight original plays written, performed, and produced by OLLI members! The evening will be filled with merry mischief, outlandish humor, romantic high jinks, scheming nonsense and laugh-out-loud silliness. Performances will be held June 23, 24 & 25 at 7:30pm, and June 26 at 2pm at the Blue Room Theatre. Tickets are $10, except for Thursday, June 23, which is “Pay-What-You-Can” night. Purchase tickets at the door, in advance at The Bookstore, or online at blueroomtheatre.com/tickets/.
Learn How to Change Bad Habits at Summer Intersession
Workshop back by popular demand, Tuesdays, August 2, 9, 23, 30
This four session lecture series, led by Dr. Joni Samples and Gayle Womack, will look at how your brain works, how you think, and how to change the way you think. Accessing your subconscious mind is a key to transforming your thinking. Work on integrating both the left and right brain in this delightful and fun summer experience.
The OLLI Summer Intersession is a win-win program for OLLI and its community partners, Chico New Thought Center, as well as for members who can enjoy OLLI classes in August. Proceeds from the four-part session pay for room rental and any revenue leftover is donated to OLLI’s Annual Fund.
The workshop is $35 for 4 sessions or $10 for each session. It is not necessary to attend all four sessions. To enroll, download the registration form and mail to the OLLI office or stop by during regular office hours (Mon.-Thurs., 9am-1pm). You can also attend and pay at the first workshop on August 2.
This summer we have a play festival, anthropology camp, theater club, energy conservation workshop, and bus trip to see the Andy Warhol: Portraits exhibit at the Crocker Art Museum. You’ll also see classes such as Travels in Africa, Create Your Own Cartoon Characters, and Facebook: What Am I Missing and is It for Me? And, of course, some OLLI favorites are back to round out your summer experience. Details can be found on the class schedule.

We’ve Crossed the Finish Line!
Thank you to all who contributed to our OLLI annual fund. We (just barely) met our $15,000 goal for the year. Creating a Brighter OLLI is our ongoing goal, of course, and it’s always a good time to give online or by mail. Thank you!
Meet Your Match!
Volunteers are the backbone of OLLI at CSU, Chico. They provide instruction, communications, technical support, outreach, and help us make important social connections. Without volunteer support, OLLI Chico could not provide the array of lifelong learning experiences members enjoy year-round. The Volunteer Connections Program is designed to keep OLLI programming sustainable by expanding volunteer participation. Learning more about you—your skills and interests—will help us connect you to areas of need within the organization. Email us if you’d like to Connect Today.
