OLLI CEE Groups

OLLI Connect Explore Expand (CEE) Groups are intended to offer a smaller and more hands-on-experience than traditional OLLI classes. The size and nature of the groups will vary depending on the preferences of the members. They will be lead and maintained by OLLI members. 

Thank you to our OLLI CEE Committee: Doug Burroughs, Beth Gottlieb, Gerry Holzman, Gail Martin, Kay Simmons, Viv Pocek and Mary Raffety!

If you would like to sign up and participate, please email oshervu@vanderbilt.edu   with the specified group you are interested in! The CEE group leader will contact those members interested in participating.  We also appreciate your suggestions for future group ideas.
