Editor's Comments

After the game, the King and the pawn go into the same box.
~ Italian proverb
OLLI at CSULB is alive and doing very well. The 2014 Spring term has 1335 paid OLLI members in 75 diff erent courses, an increase from last year’s spring total of 1241 members.
Just this term, we have over 160 NEW OLLI members. Much of the success
of OLLI at CSULB is due to our volunteer teachers who not only lead classes for eight weeks, but put in hours away from school preparing their class material. We are grateful. Thanks.

Don Patman has retired from teaching computer classes at OLLI for health reasons. We may see him again in a new role. Many of his photographs
have appeared in the SUN. Do visit us when you can, Don.

Otto Ross, our Centenarian plus, now has company. Denver’s OLLI has a Centenarian Paul Marcus, a very vibrant 100 year old who still takes classes.

We welcome Judith Granger, an established journalist, to our SUN staff as a reporter.

Letter to the Editor :
It is hard to believe that we have lived in Fullerton for 5 years, and for us, it has been a good move. We still miss our friends and colleagues at Senior University (yes, I know, I know, it’s OLLI!) who were a big part of our life before 2009. Dave and I race each other to grab the new issue of the SUN when it arrives, and I read it cover to cover, immediately.
I read the latest issue and was pleased to see the names of friends and instructors who are still there, and I was pleased to see many new names, which means that OLLI-CSULB is growing, as it should.
I am taking a recorder class, and singing in the Chorale at CSU Fullerton’s OLLI, and enjoying them. I am impressed by their large facility, and the level of enthusiastic volunteers.
Best wishes to all.
Dave and Jean Lowe
