PRACTICE SESSION JUNE 9:  Our practice session has evolved into a dress rehearsal dry run in the sense that Jesse Williams, OLLI's maestro of virtual reality) has offered us a zoom site on Wednesday, June 9 at 3:30 PM when he and our volunteer Technical Support, Peg MacKnight will be present to help us do an abbreviated rehearsal of the program. 

I will send out the zoom link for the practice session as soon as I have it.

This is mainly to check out technical matters - to make sure that everyone's audiovisual equipment and voices are functioning properly.  Limited coaching will be available - but more can be arranged if necessary/desirable.

Attendance/Participation in this rehearsal session is voluntary.

WEBSITE ADDITION: There has been an addition to the website (BLOOMSDAY BY OLLI 2021) - it now includes an all-expense-paid virtual tour of Ireland led by Rick Steeves.
