OLLI Cafe Proposal Form

OLLI Café is a venue for the exchange of ideas and experiences focusing on improving the quality of life. The goal of OLLI Café is to present a potpourri of presentations and activities that provide information and new knowledge to OLLI members. This program runs from 12:15 – 1:15 PM ON FRIDAYS ONLY. Our members begin to socialize and participate in a brown-bag lunch at 11:45 AM which is a prelude to the actual Café Presentation. We suggest a fifty-minute presentation, performance, demonstration, or activity followed by a ten-minute period of questions and answers when appropriate. Of course, you may arrange your presentation differently to fit your subject and style. If you require a different format please let us know in advance and on this form.
