Mardi Gras Comes to OLLI

OLLI Mardis Gras Social Set for February
Come join us in your purple, green and gold for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute’s “Mardi Gras” winter social at the College of Continuing and Professional Education at Kennesaw State University. The event will be held Monday, February 18th, at KSU Center.

Three times a year the 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 Reflections Swing Band and everyone is encour-aged to be creative as they dress in New Orleans style Mardi Gras attire. There will be a prize for the best costume.

Socials traditionally draw as many as 250 attendees who come out for an evening of great food, dancing and a lot of fun.

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. “Through the OLLI program we not only have a really great time, but we also give back to the community,” Mrs. Girage said. We are also encouraging attendees to bring donations for the families in Northern Georgia who have encountered tough times during last weeks storms.

The cost of the social is $10 per person and includes dancing, a catered dinner 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 parking is plentiful!
