Curriculum: Class seats still open

We have had a large amount of interest in our courses this semester, but there are still spaces available if you would like to become a member. From literature courses (“Bob Dylan’s poetry,” Oct. 13) to gardening (“How does your Garden Grow? How Climate Change is Affecting Your Food and Flowers,” Nov. 30) to self-improvement and health courses (“Traveling Safely in the Age of Terrorism,” Oct. 19 and “Puppy Raisers – Guide Dog Foundation,” Nov. 28). We always welcome new members, so please get in contact if you want more information.

The Eclipse: OLLI@UGA members take a trip to the Path of Totality

Over 80 OLLI@UGA members traveled up to Dillard on Aug. 21 to see the solar eclipse in the path of totality.

After lunch at the Dillard House, they watched the path of the moon on the lawn outside. Just before the total eclipse the clouds came over and blocked the view. Disappointment was avoided. Just before the eclipse, the clouds parted overhead and allowed members a great view of this spectacular event.
