(It’s also a potluck so bring something to share.)
When Megan Whilden was the Cultural Director for the city of Pittsfield, she did way more than just keep folks entertained. She brought communities together over important issues of the day — and always made sure that all communities were included. She always involved the LGBT community in everything she did, and she still does. For example, she created Out in the Berkshires, a weekend of queer culture and entertainment, and she still moderates the Facebook page Out in the Berkshires.
Now Megan is the Executive Director of OLLI, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Berkshire Community College, where the range of topics for the courses is as varied as the minds of the seniors who attend. She never forgets that diversity is the key to the strength of our communities.
Always a witty and engaging speaker, she will talk about her hopes for the community we share and OLLI’s role in it. OLLI provides educational, social and volunteer opportunities designed especially by and for people fifty years old and better in the greater Berkshires.
