Thank You, Kathy Breen!

By Jennifer Disano, Executive Director

Loudoun Site Assistant Kathy Breen has decided to leave her position with OLLI-Mason and enter retirement. Kathy has served as “the face” of OLLI in Loudoun for five years and has provided a welcoming presence for OLLI members and GMU Loudoun staff alike. She has supported the mission of OLLI through advocacy in the community, support of Loudoun planning groups and coordinating with GMU administration at Loudoun.

Kathy has shown great leadership in Loudoun and often would go above and beyond her duties in supporting volunteer liaisons and instructors, and even arranging room rentals off site. We are grateful for Kathy’s five years of service to OLLI and we wish her well.

Kathy has enjoyed her experience at OLLI very much and now looks forward to enjoying OLLI classes and social events as a member!

Maria Buczek will replace Kathy Breen as site assistant in Loudoun.

Obituary: Deborah Halverson

From Debbie Halverson's son, Peter: "After five months of struggle recovering from a severe health crisis, Deborah passed away yesterday [Feb 21 2014]. Despite the ongoing setbacks that challenged her physically, mentally, and emotionally, she continued to hold fast in her belief in the power of love to heal all. My sisters and I ask that you celebrate her memory by sharing that love with the world."

Debbie's memorial service will be held at 5:00 on Tuesday, March 4, at the the First Church of Christ, Scientist in Reston, Virginia. Donations may be made in lieu of flowers to the Wounded Warriors Project ( For more information, please contact Peter Halverson at or 703-395-6756.

OLLI records show that Debbie became an OLLI member in August 2003. In Fall 2005, she served on the Board of Directors, becoming the OLLI President in Fall 2006. She continued to serve on the board for several years, and was also membership chair and member services chair. Over her more than 10 years as a member, she taught an astonishing 45 courses on a range of topics. Many of her best-loved courses were on cooking themes, fully exploiting the kitchen in the cottage at Tallwood, and she was scheduled to teach her popular Comfort Foods course for a third time this past winter term before illness forced a cancellation. Her devotion to lifelong learning and to her OLLI colleagues led to her exceptionally creative association with our community. It is reflected in a lasting legacy.

Tribute to Debbie Halverson

By Martha Scanlon, OLLI President

It was with great sadness that we learned this weekend of the death of Debbie Halverson after a 5-month illness. It is hard to put into words all that Debbie has done over the years for OLLI. She embodied the essence of our organization: what it means to be involved, to volunteer, to think outside the box, to join with others to teach and have fun. I remember the day she walked into the Tallwood office, saw me working behind the desk, and said “would you join my committee?” I didn’t know what committee that was, but thank goodness I joined. Debbie was so full of ideas that she had to wear big wonderful hats to keep the ideas from spilling out all over campus. It was Debbie who thought of fixing up the cottage and the kitchen for cooking classes, provided a home-cooked breakfast between terms, asked the Dirty Knees Club to put in the herb garden, began the tradition of OLLI Valentine’s Day holiday parties, thought up Grandcamp and Summerfest and an OLLI auction to raise money and probably a million other things still on the drawing board. I forgot to mention that she served as President of OLLI and chaired several committees.

Debbie once said that she liked to read what she had written. I think there can be no better tribute to Debbie than her own words that appeared in the E-News, July 12, 2013.

Reprinted here from OLLI E-News, July 12, 2013:

What a ride!

By Debbie Halverson, OLLI Volunteer

EXACTLY 10 YEARS AGO IN 2003, I walked down the veranda at Tallwood and began the adventure of finding my life as an OLLI member and also began giving to the organization that would bring me blessings over and over. Now, I look back to subsequent roles that included being a liaison, to teaching, to chairing committees, to initiating the cooking curriculum, to being OLLI president. How I have grown! I’ve learned so much about myself, and I have been able to translate that knowledge into many ways outside of my OLLI life. And, of course, the courses I’ve taken and taught have completed the mission that brought me to OLLI in the first place.

     A day in the life of an OLLI member includes countless encounters with the work of volunteers. A new member probably spoke to the office volunteer about details related to the organization. At the beginning of the term, the new member may have attended a kick-off party with assembled food fit for the most demanding palate, prepared by hospitality volunteers, and listened to brief talks by OLLI leadership and club/activity coordinators, all volunteers.

     Members walking to class at Tallwood inhale the fragrance of the magnificent OLLI gardens, the work of our volunteer gardeners. In class, a volunteer liaison introduces the teacher and stands ready to help should help be needed during the course of instruction often taught by another OLLI volunteer.

     We are approaching 1,100 members; that large a membership needs an ever-larger group of helpers to carry on the ongoing tasks that are needed to keep the three campuses running smoothly – and provide new ideas for classes and solutions to problems. True: we do have paid staff to do what volunteers aren’t equipped to do. But the rest must fall to me and those other members who pitch in wherever they see they are needed. Without us, the place would just fold, or, to make up the difference, we’d hire more staff and raise everyone’s dues … a lot. I value so much the work of my co-volunteers, am inspired to continue with this work of love, and keep hoping that the example we offer will draw more members into this amazing opportunity for fellowship and personal growth.

February Board Meeting Highlights

By Gordon Canyock, Board Member

Executive Director Jennifer Disano announced that Kathy Breen, Loudoun Site Assistant, is retiring and will be replaced by former staff member Maria Buczek. President Martha Scanlon is seeking replacements for Kathy West, who resigned as Loudoun Coordinator, and for Russell Stone, who resigned as Strategic Planning Committee Chair. 

The Board authorized up to $5000 to purchase a wheelchair lift at Tallwood and negotiate with Mason its installation, estimated to cost the University $25,000. Many of our members have difficulty managing the stairs leading from the TA-1 level to the other two classrooms below and it is virtually impossible if using a wheelchair.

Fashion Show: OLLI Members Get Ready to Strut Their Stuff

By Norma Jean Reck

A really big THANK YOU! to all OLLI members who have volunteered to model and serve on various committees for the upcoming fashion show on Tuesday, May 20 at Country Club of Fairfax. The volunteers so far are mostly from the Tallwood campus. That means that we need volunteers from the Reston and Loudoun campuses. We want to have members from each campus to model for Bloomies and serve as committee members. It's a great opportunity to make new friends and enjoy a fashionable social event while fundraising for OLLI.

Consider sharing your talent and expertise on the following committees, which are forming now: Table decorations, hospitality, name tags, raffle and door prizes. Email Norma Jean Reck at to volunteer or for more information. Be sure to include your phone number and area of interest.

The online registration forms are being developed and should be ready to go in a couple of weeks. Then, we can begin to register online. The cost of $55 per person includes the fashion show, a delicious luncheon, and entertainment by they-make-you-want-to-sing-along Capitol Reunion Quartet.

You'll want to be a part of this first-time OLLI event.

Hearts and Shamrocks Party

By Wendy Campbell, Chair, Member Services Committee

We were all heartbroken when we had to cancel the Valentine's Day Party on February 14th.  We have now renamed it the Hearts and Shamrocks Party and will be holding it from 1:00-3:00 on Monday, March 17th at the Church of the Good Shepherd.  

If you are already registered for the Valentine's Party we will assume that you are coming unless you let us know that you can no longer attend. If you did not sign up for the February event, but would like to come to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, please let the office know by noon on Friday, March 14th. There is still plenty of room. We provide ice cream sundaes and will need a count in order to be sure we have enough food. Top O' The Mornin' To You All!

Computer Club

Sat, Mar 15: The Cloud–For Non-Meteorologists;
From Television Sets to Communications Policy
Paul Howard, Computer Club Coordinator

The Computer Club (OLLI Personal Computer User Group, or OPCUG) will meet with its partner, the Potomac Area Technology and Computer Society (PATACS), Saturday, March 15 at Tallwood. Join us at 12:30 for soft drinks and socializing in the social room. Presentations will begin at 1:00.

Learn 30: The Cloud–For Non-Meteorologists, Presentation by Lorrin Garson, OPCUG

“The Cloud” continues to be a mystery for many people. “The Cloud” is nothing more than distributed storage, a simple concept, and like all technologies has its virtues and vices. It’s a technology that has been in use for over 30 years, although relatively new for home computing. Learn about the early history of “Cloud” storage and what’s good and bad about using it today.

From Television Sets to Communications Policy: Presentation by Frederick E. Ellrod III (Rick), Director of the Communications Policy and Regulation Division of the County’s Department of Cable and Consumer Services.

(1) Connecting Your Home. This presentation focuses on video, which is available via cable, satellite, over-the-air television, recorded video, and the Internet. We will discuss the types of cable networks in Fairfax County, the services they offer, pricing strategies, and factors to consider in choosing a cable provider.

(2) Buying a New TV. Buying a TV set is more complex than it used to be. An outline of the key factors consumers need to take into account in choosing a digital TV, such as size, resolution, refresh rate, screen type, 3D capability, sound, Internet connection and “smart TVs.”

(3) Things to Come in Communications. A brief look at leading policy issues in communications today, such as competition, “a la carte” unbundled programming, “over-the-top” Internet video, and open Internet access (network neutrality).

See full details on this meeting by clicking here. For information on the Computer Club, see the OPCUG website. OPCUG dues of $5 for 2014 will be collected at this meeting.

History Club

By Beth Lambert, History Club Coordinator

The OLLI History Club will meet at Tallwood on Wednesday, March 5, in TA-1 at 2:15. David Heymsfeld will give a presentation titled “Ike and Dick: Portrait of a Strange Political Marriage.” Given the complex personalities involved, it is an intriguing topic. David Heymsfeld retired from federal service in 2011 after a long career that included service as staff director of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure.
All OLLI members and guests are welcome. Bring a friend. With luck we will be past the snow, sleet, black ice and other such inconveniences that have plagued us for these many months.

Poet's Corner

Knees Like a Flamingo

I wish my knees bent backward like the long lean pink flamingo.
How handy to lift a leg and tie a shoelace.
And instead of clumsy awkward tripping over my own two feet
I'd place each forward step with grace, like setting napkins at the table.

I'd see each tread so clearly with never a thigh to block
The view of the perilous pebble or loose brick
In plain sight. People would admire my walks with envy
As I'd promenade with dignity and charm.

I wish my knees bent backward like the long lean pink flamingo.

Vietnam and Myanmar: Visualizing a Post-Conflict World

Led by Professor Karen Kasmauski, this program uses visual journalism to explore the aftermath of conflict.

The program fee is $5,952 and the application is due on March 7. You can find more information about the program here.

Mason Highlights

Other Mason events, next three weeks

By Helen Ackerman, OLLI E-News Staff Writer
Speaker: Johnnetta B. Cole. Currently the director of the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of African Art, Dr. Cole was a pioneer of African-American studies and black women's studies. She was formerly president of Spelman College, the oldest historically black women's college in the country. Tue, Feb 25, 7:00 to 8:00. Johnson Center, Bistro. Free.

Film: 12 Years A Slave. In the antebellum United States, Solomon Northup, a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. See this Academy Awards nominated movie. Sat, Mar 1, 9:00; Thu, Mar 6, 9:00; Fri, Mar 7, 6:00 and 9:00; Sun, Mar 8, 6:00. Johnson Center, Cinema.  $3.

Exhibit: Fixed, Measured, and Leveled. An exhibit of works by Richard Franklin, Harold Linton, and Peter Winant. Can a line define boundaries of public and shared space, color become physical energy, or shape conjure or describe memory? By using formal elements of line, shape, and color–seemingly simple characteristics of drawing and painting–the artists in this exhibition investigate complex issues of control and perception that move beyond the limits of the ordinary. Mon, Mar 3, to Fri, Mar 28, 6:00 to 8:00. Fine Art Gallery, Art & Design Building.

Talk. Enduring Technological Optimism: Israeli Water Resources at the Crossroads. Dr. Alon Tal, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, and a visiting scholar from Stanford University, is a leading Israeli environmental activist. He discusses the revolution in Israel’s water resources, using desalination and waste water recycling. Israel’s water management strategy is considered a model for many dryland nations, but is it sustainable? Mon, Mar 3, 12:15 to 1:30. Exploratory Hall, Room 3301. Free.

Lecture. Poet Crystal Endsley, Visiting Professor of African Studies at Hamilton College, will speak about her work. A reception and poetry workshop will follow. Tue, Mar 4, 1:30 to 5:30.  Mason Hall, Meese Conference Room. Free.

Visiting Filmmaker: Let the Fire Burn. Director Jason Osder has crafted a found-footage film that unfurls with the tension of a great thriller. On May 13, 1985, a longtime feud between the city of Philadelphia and the controversial radical urban group MOVE came to a deadly climax. Using only archival news coverage and interviews, Osder has brought to life one of the most tumultuous and largely forgotten clashes between government and citizens in modern American history. Sat, Mar 29, 7:30. Johnson Center, Cinema. A Q&A with filmmaker Jason Osder follows the screening. Free.
