Have you used a roadside billboard to promote your OLLI?

Jo Brownlie, OLLI at Saginaw Valley State University, Asks OLLI:

Have you used a roadside billboard to promote your OLLI? At a recent charity auction, we purchased a four-week run for an outdoor roadside billboard. (We got a good deal!) Has anyone used a billboard to promote their OLLI? If so, please describe the message and visuals you used.

  1. We have put up an OLLI billboard twice - once in Tulsa and we now have one in Bartlesville, OK (that was donated to us by a local sign company). The Tulsa billboard was great and in a prime location. We had it up for a year and 1/2 until someone painted a mustache on our woman! We used OLLI members as models - just as we do on each of our catalogs. I will send you a pdf of our artwork to your email at Saginaw.
