Clubs

 Clubs and Shared Interest Groups (SIG)s are important benefits that give us an opportunity to join with other OLLI members who share similar interests. These groups are free to current members. The Writers' Group is not currently active. For more information about any of our clubs/SIGs contact the Club Chair.

Registering for clubs (excluding Wednesdays with OLLI) requires a two-step process.

Friendship Force International 

Friendship Force is focused on promoting understanding, cultural exchange and citizen diplomacy through international home stays. The core activity of our members is traveling in small groups, to stay with people in other places to learn their culture. OLLI members can also choose to host a small dinner, or be a day host or a home host for people who visit us from around the world.

Due to COVID, pot luck dinners are on hold until further notice. Information about Zoom meetings will be sent to those members who sign up during the registration process. For more information contact Social Chair Jane Hudson, jhudson_98@yahoo.com

Our next inbound FFI group is from Hartford, Connecticut, and will arrive in January 2022. Contact Wendy Johnston, program chair, mrswendyjohnston@gmail.com, to volunteer to assist with the Hartford incoming visitors. For more information about FFI, contact Wendy Johnston, program chair, follow us on Facebook at Friendship Force Tallahassee, Florida or at our website, friendshipforce.org

Walking Club

Come and join us on the many fabulous trails that Tallahassee has to offer. For those who are new, we have three groups of walkers. The gentle walkers meet Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings and walk for about 1 hour at a leisurely pace, mostly on paved or hard pack surfaces.

The intermediate walkers meet Monday, Wednesday and Friday and walk for 1-1.5 hours for a distance of 3-5 miles. They walk on more wooded trails which may have roots, grass or gravel but are usually shady. We also have a few "crazy ladies" who meet at 7:00 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays and walk at Cascades Park or in one of their neighborhoods for one hour. 

Please register online for the Walking Club and then send an email to Debbie Justice at DrDJO@yahoo.com, to be added to our email contact list and to receive the locations of our walking sites.
