AN IMPRESSIVE MIX OF OLLI TEACHERS
From the executive director
By Thom Clement, Executive Director
WE ARE ABUNDANTLY BLESSED with resources for the OLLI program at George Mason University.
  • First and foremost, our members have a rich diversity of experience in government, business, military and academic careers.
  • The availability of experts in the greater Washington Metropolitan region makes us the envy of lifelong learning institutes around the country.
  • The willingness of George Mason faculty and students to share their knowledge via presentations, performances and lectures is remarkable.
     We owe a tremendous gratitude to the OLLI members who contribute their ideas and skills of persuasion to organize courses and recruit wonderful speakers and instructors. Instructors are those who teach a multi-session course; speakers are those who make one-time presentations. Below is a visual representation of where our instructors and speakers come from:

WELCOME TO OUR NEW ADMINISTRATOR/REGISTRAR
Kerin Braudaway joins staff at Tallwood

I AM SO PLEASED TO WELCOME Kerin Braudaway as our new administrator and registrar in the main office at Tallwood. Kerin is busy learning about the many tasks and responsibilities of the job, but she is a quick learner and loves working with people.
     Kerin lives in Oak Hill with her husband Wes, who is a systems engineer for BAE Systems. They have three sons: Jim (22), and twins Tom and Ben (19). Jim and Tom attend James Madison University, and Ben attends Virginia Tech.
     Kerin graduated from Fairfax High School and went on to James Madison University, where she got her degree in Office and Business Administration. She recently worked as a financial quality coordinator at INOVA Fairfax Hospital and has been an active volunteer leader in her church and in her sons’ schools. She heard about OLLI from Maria Buczek, who served as our administrator/registrar from 2008-2011.
     Please join me in extending a friendly welcome to Kerin!

Note: Although they spell their names differently, we now have two staff members whose names sound the same: Kerin Braudaway (our new administrator/registrar) and Karen Nash (our finance associate).

INAUGURATION OF DR. ÁNGEL CABRERA
Festivities held last Friday in Patriot Center
By Pat Carroll, University Liaison Committee Chair

DR. ÁNGEL CABRERA WAS INAUGURATED as the sixth president of George Mason University at the Patriot Center on Friday, April 26. A large crowd was present; among them were a number of OLLI members, attending individually or as representatives of OLLI or other organizations affiliated with the University.
     The theme of the Inauguration was the Vision Statement recently approved by the Board of Trustees. It is “The Mason Ideainnovative, diverse, entrepreneurial, accessible.” A graphical depiction is here.

     Each of the four characteristics was presented in a short video and short speech by faculty, staff or students. When the diverse speech was given, I was pleasantly surprised to hear Osher Lifelong Learning Institute mentioned.
     OLLI is surely getting “Brand Recognition” these days for its important role of providing senior learning opportunities to citizens of Northern Virginia. Just last month, Dr. Cabrera spoke at the OLLI Teacher Appreciation Event to assembled OLLI instructors and teachers as well as Mason faculty leaders and students receiving OLLI scholarships. And next week (on Thursday, May 8 at 2:15), former Mason President Alan Merten will be speaking about "The George Mason University Story" to OLLI members at Tallwood, with the presentation to be videoconferenced to OLLI members at our Loudoun site in Mason spaces there.
     Go OLLI!

Editor's note: Following are ways to watch the inauguration either on your TV or on the web.
  • On GMU-TV, you can watch the inauguration on your TV from 1:00–3:30pm on Thursday, May 2 through Sunday, May 5. Click here for local cable channels that show GMU-TV.
  • On YouTube, you can watch the mention of OLLI during the Staff Senate Chair Joel Carls' 90-second speech on diversity.
  • On YouTube, you can watch Dr. Cabrera's 29-minute inauguration speech here.
  • On YouTube, you can watch a video of the entire ceremony here (1 hour, 34 minutes).

LEADER PROFILE
Ann Youngren, co-chair of Art & Music Resource Group

By Arleen Richman, OLLI E-News Staff Writer
ANN YOUNGREN, CO-CHAIR of OLLI's Art and Music Resource Group, is delighted that we have so many galleries like the National Gallery of Art in the D.C. area. "They are free, and I would like everyone to be able to get out and see them," she says.
     This philosophy is incorporated in the fine-art classes Ann has developed for the Reston and Loudoun campuses. "I have been lucky to locate art experts such as the two docents at the National Gallery of Art who were pleased to give lectures on topics such as French Impressionists and What Makes Modern Art Good," she recalls, "but the real fun is when the class gets into a bus and goes to Washington to actually see the paintings we studied." For the future, Ann hopes to develop similar programs for Tallwood and to inaugurate art lectures that will move from campus to campus.
     She first became involved with OLLI in 2006 when she was hired as our Reston site assistant. When Ann left this position in 2010, she joined OLLI and immediately volunteered as a member of the Art and Music Resource Group. "This was great," she says. "It really meshed with my art background." Two years ago she agreed to co-chair the resource group – a responsibility which "scares me a bit."
     Ann, who was born in New York City, moved to England as a young child (her father was a British diplomat) and attended schools there. After high school, she studied interior design at a London art school. Moving to Chicago, she began her career by working on commercial accounts, such as banks, for a large architectural firm – where she met her future husband Ralph, an architect. After her two children were born, she worked from home on residential interior designs.
     Ann has been married to her husband Ralph for 50 years (now retired and also an OLLI member); they have two sons and four grandchildren. A dog lover, she enjoys walking Milly and Molly, terrier mixes, on the Reston trails. Ann moved to Reston in 2003. When she is not involved with OLLI, she spends a good deal of time working for the Reston Historical Trust.

SUPER SALAD SOCIAL FEATURED JAZZ
Potluck lunch as the Tallwood Trio played

Photos of the event by Stan Schretter.
MORE THAN SIXTY PEOPLE attended the OLLI-Reston luncheon and jazz event on Friday, April 19. This Super Salad Social was a potluck lunch with an amazing variety of salads, fruit dishes and desserts. OLLI members were able to enjoy lunch at the Rose Gallery in the Reston Community Center at Lake Anne in an atmosphere reminiscent of a daytime nightclub as the Tallwood Trio played. Alan Wenberg on piano, David Hirsch on drums and Eric Henderson on bass described their coming together last fall and their weekly rehearsals as they emerge as OLLI's "house band." The social event was organized by OLLI-Reston Coordinator Carol Henderson with the help of several OLLI volunteers and Reston Site Assistant Arman Majumder.

ATTENTION EXPERIENCED POWERPOINT USERS!
Can you help mentor an instructor?

Wanted: PowerPoint mentor (any gender).
THE PROGRAM COMMITTEE is looking for mentors to help instructors with creating PowerPoint presentations for their classes. This would be a one-on-one effort. Currently there is only one teacher request but it would be nice to have more than one mentor available if future requests are received.
     If you can help either now or at a convenient time for you in the future, please contact me. Thank you!

OUTING TO ASH LAWN-HIGHLAND
OLLI group visits home of President James Monroe


Top: arrival at Ash Lawn-Highland. Bottom: group during tour; inset, members doing paper quilling. Photos by Dan Feighery. Banner image at top of issue by Bill Reader.
ON APRIL 19, forty-five OLLI members traveled to Charlottesville to visit Ash Lawn-Highland, the home of James Monroe, fifth president of the United States. We were greeted by the home's new executive director. We then toured the home, visited the ice house, participated in candle making and paper quilling (decorations made from small paper strips), and enjoyed box lunches from a local bakery/deli. And it didn't rain until we returned home!

BOOK CLUB
Wed, May 8 – In the Garden of the Beasts
THE BOOK CLUB will meet at 1:30 on Wednesday, April 10, at Tallwood. The book for discussion is In the Garden of the Beasts by Erik Larson, who is considered a master of "narrative nonfiction." It is the story of the tenure of William E.Dodd, a history professor at the University of Chicago and a Jeffersonian Democrat,  who served as the American ambassador to Germany during the volatile years of 1933 to 1937 as Hitler rose to power and Germany prepared for war. 
     All OLLI members are welcome.
     Looking ahead: Next month's selection, for discussion at 10:00 on Wednesday, June 12, is Cleopatra by Stacy Schiff.
-- By Ceda McGrew, Book Club Coordinator

PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB
Fri, May 10 – "Washington, DC: A Photographer's Paradise"
ON FRIDAY, MAY 10, the Photography Club will hold its monthly meeting at 9:30 in TA-1. Our speaker will be E. David Luria (photo at right), whose presentation is entitled "Washington, DC: A Photographer's Paradise." David will highlight the best-known and least-known places to photograph in the DC area. He will describe the different angles and photographic techniques he uses to capture these sites. David will confirm that DC is really a "Paris on the Potomac."
     David Luria is founder and director of the Washington Photo Safari that he began in 1999. The program has expanded to many domestic and overseas locations and now includes a team of twelve other  professional photographers. Mr. Luria has served as an official photographer for the National Cherry Blossom Festival and as an event photographer for the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. David was born in Hamburg, Germany; his family, escaping the Holocaust, came to the United States in 1938.
     You do not have to be a member of the Photography Club to attend. All OLLI members and their guests are welcome.
-- By Ed Parker, Photography Club Coordinator

POET'S CORNER
Courtesy of the OLLI Poetry Workshop


The Lowly Umbrella

The lowly, much coveted, needed, umbrella
began as shade from the sun
in old Egypt and Assyria,
then came to the West
ribbed with leftover stays
from milady’s corset, now
in basic black with short ribs
short handle for easy grip
duckbilled handle for formal wear
hooked for an easy carry
bold stripes, polka-dotted,
paisley. Medium to large,
gigantic golf varieties                      
to accommodate a crowd                       
shelter a damsel                   
keep rainwater from a cup of tea
keep papers dry
protect one’s ‘do.
Bumbershoot or brolly,
No substitute.

Jan Bohall

Note: The above poem won an Honorable Mention at the Poetry Society of Virginia’s Competition for 2013; see the recent E-News article about the OLLI winners.
