Editor's Comments

THOUGHT FOR TODAY: “When truth is buried underground it grows, it chokes, it gathers such an explosive force that on the day it bursts out, it blows up everything with it.” ~~~~Emile Zola
OLLI gives hundreds of people the opportunity to learn more truth and gain more talents. To see and hear is to learn. Learning in our classrooms comes from the efforts and life experience of volunteer teachers. They study their subject (many are experts in their field already) and prepare notes to give inspiring presentations. We appreciate them. We also acknowledge the work of Carl Curtis who makes sure you can see and hear what is going on. Through his work, microphones are in the right places and audio-visual equipment is prepared and set up so you enjoy a great learning environment. rick
While Renee and I relaxed on a luxurious two-week cruise to Hawaii, Rick Adams and The SUN staff did an excellent job taking care of the business of preparing another issue of The SUN.
In six months, we will distribute the Fall issue of The SUN. That issue will be dedicated to our 20 years of existence. The first ten years we were Senior University. Then we affiliated with The Osher Foundation and became OLLI.
