GILL Annual Picnic slated for August 10

The summer social picnic is planned for August 10 from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the Lewis Family Pavilion in Oakland for those interested in the Garrett Institute for Lifelong Learning (GILL).  GILL is a member driven organization whose mission is to enrich lives by offering a variety of educational, cultural, and social programs geared toward adults primarily 50+ years of age, but open to all. “It’s learning just for the fun of it” according to current GILL members. There is a $10 membership fee to join GILL. 

The annual picnic is an opportunity to join GILL for the 2017-2018 season, to find out about the fall 2017 program plans and to discuss ideas for the future direction of the organization and future program offerings.  Topics already planned for this fall include the following:  Russian Tsars, Sausage Making, Native Plants, Medical Testing and Screenings, Craft Beer Tasting, Preparing your garden for winter, Mason Bees, Hot Topics and the ever popular, 'Soup and TED' discussions.

The picnic often draws about 50 participants who enjoy good food and the company of friends. New members are welcome. If you wish to attend, please contact Continuing Education and Workforce Development to register (301-387-3069).

Administered through Garrett College Continuing Education and Workforce Development, GILL originated as an experiment by members of the community to develop a group of like-minded people, with curious minds and a keen interest in learning for its own sake. The organization is now entering the fifth season of operation and generally draws over 100 members.
