The Ask OLLI blog is a resource for Osher Lifelong Learning Institute

Entries to the blog are called "posts" and can only be submitted by blog editors. Please contact Anne Cardale at the OLLI National Resource Center if you have an article suggestion for the AskOLLI editors.
Each post has a "comment" section where blog subscribers can submit their own remarks and
responses to the post. A subscriber must be logged in to comment on a post. A login link is available at the bottom of the right-hand
column, as well as at the end of each posting page.
Although the Ask OLLI blog is publicly viewable, commenting is closed to non-subscribers. For more information on Ask OLLI, or if you wish to create a subscriber account please contact Anne Cardale.

Are there any OLLIs that have partnerships with a Village to Village Network organization? Villages in the network (http://www.vtvnetwork.org/) are membership-driven, grass-roots organizations run by volunteers and paid staff and help coordinate access to affordable services to enable seniors continue to live in their own homes. One of the well-known Villages is Beacon Hill Village in Boston: http://www.beaconhillvillage.org/content.aspx?page_id=22&club_id=332658&module_id=75811
