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.

Email group coordinator Gail Crow at gailydo@icloud.com to register or for more information.


The games SIG meets in-person once or twice monthly to play board and card games like Scrabble, Scattegories, Quiddler, Five Crowns, Wizard, Rummikub, etc. You are free to bring a game you’d like to share. This SIG is led by Helen Livingston. (If you are interested in playing MahJongg, please email Helen with your availability. This group would meet at a different time.)

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!

We have established an OLLI group through an app called TeamReach. This easy-to-navigate app can be used by any of our members to schedule impromptu sessions of pickleball at any courts of their choice in York County.

If you are an OLLI York member and would like an invitation to join the group through the app, please contact Patti Baughman at phbaughman@comcast.net or Glenn Young at vizmas57@comcast.net.


The walking group meets at local parks and trails year-round. The length of the walk is shared prior to each walk. The goal is light exercise, fresh air, and camaraderie.

Email Patti Baughman at phbaughman333@gmail.com or Glenn Young at vizmas57@comcast.net to register or for more information.
