Retired or Not – Kennesaw State University Summer Social at OLLI

Jump & Jive Summer Social

OLLI 1940’s Summer Social set for June

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute’s “Jump & Jive” summer social at the College of Continuing and Professional Education at Kennesaw State University is sure to please. The event will be held Monday, June 18th, at KSU Center from 6pm—9pm.

Three times a year the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, also known as OLLI, invites anyone 50 years of age and older to attend a special social event designed just for them. Many friendships have been made at these events, and folks enjoy getting together for dinner and dancing.

Music will be provided by the Society Express Band and everyone is encour- aged to be creative as they dress in Post World-War II attire. As usual, there will be a prize for the best costume.

“We are hoping that attendees go all out on this one. This was a time of celebration and invention. Our economy was beginning to flourish after a time of struggle and war. It’s going to be a blast,” said Michelle Girage, OLLI Assistant Director.

Attendees are encouraged to bring pop tabs to donate to the Ronald McDonald House Charities. The pop tabs collected help families of children that are ill. Another important charity effort includes the collection of nonperishable food items to help local food pantries in the area. “Through the OLLI program we not only have a really great time, but we also give back to the community,” Mrs. Girage said.

The cost of the social is $10 per person and includes dancing, a catered dinner buffet and an opportunity to make new friends while catching up with old ones. Doors open at 5:45 p.m. and dinner is served from 6-7 p.m. Dancing will be from 6-9 p.m.

Reservations are required and space is limited! Parking is free. To register, call 770-423-6765 or visit us on the Web at
