Special Interest Groups

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are created and led by OLLI members who decide to continue meeting on a regular basis to further pursue an area of study or interest. SIGs are open to all OLLI members, but registration is required.

Creative Writing 

The creative writing group meets monthly, both in person and via Zoom. Members of the SIG develop the agenda, focusing on various aspects of creative writing in a fun and supportive environment.

The knitting group meets in-person weekly. All skill levels of knitting and crochet are welcome. This group is very informal but does send out a weekly reminder to those who regularly attend. Sometimes only two people come, other times there can be as many as ten or twelve!

The walking group meets at local parks and trails in the warmer months. The length of the walk is shared prior to each walk. Some walks involve geocaching, but the goal is for light exercise, fresh air, and camaraderie.
