The camaraderie that grows out of shared experience is significant and lasting, which is why social and cultural opportunities are a key component of OLLI’s mission. Plus, community is at the core of OLLI.

Whether at picnics and themed gatherings, casual get-togethers, or formal celebratory events, OLLI members enjoy one another’s company and relish the opportunity to come together as a group.
