Lone Tree Cultural Opportunities

The following announcements are being sent to Lone Tree HOA presidents in hopes that the information might be passed on to your neighborhood residents through HOA newsletters or email broadcast. If anyone has questions, please contact David Williams at 303-345-1335 or dwilliams4000@qwest.net.

The Lone Tree Library will sponsor a Great Books Discussion Group starting in January 2010. This will be the first Great Books Club in Lone Tree, and will meet the first and third Thursday evenings of each month from 7 to 8:30. The first meeting will be January 7. If you are interested or have questions, please call David Williams at 303-345-1335.

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, sponsored by the University of Denver University College Enrichment Program, finally has classes for the south metro area. OLLI South offers an eight-week winter semester beginning in January 2010 with courses in history, philosophy, literature, the arts, current affairs, science, and more, all held in Highlands Ranch. The spring term begins in late March and will be posted on the website in late January. OLLI is a membership program designed for men and women age 50 and “better” who wish to pursue lifelong learning in the company of like-minded peers. See the website for a catalog and detailed course descriptions and registration information: www.universitycollege.du.edu/olli.

And be sure to take your children and grandchildren to the Passport to Culture performances at the Lone Tree Recreation Center on the third Sunday of each month. These programs start at 3, are usually only an hour in length, and admission is $1.00 (children 2 and under get in free.) Passport to Culture is sponsored jointly by the City of Lone Tree Arts Commission and South Suburban Parks and Recreation District. For information about upcoming programs, go to www.cityoflonetree.com, and click on “Leisure Time,” then “Arts,” then “Passport to Culture.”

Thanks.
