Garrett Institute for Lifelong Learning to host annual picnic

A summer social picnic will be held on August 27th 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. β€œIt’s learning just for the fun of it,” according to current GILL members.

The annual picnic is an opportunity to join GILL for the 2018-2019 season, find out about the fall 2018 programs, and to discuss ideas for the future direction of the organization and future program offerings. The picnic often draws about 50 participants who enjoy good food and the company of friends. New members are welcome. Those interested in attending the picnic should call 301-387-3781 to register.

Administered through the Garrett College division of 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 its sixth season of operation and generally has 75 or more members.

For more information on GILL membership and fall programs, persons may contact Jean Tumbarello at 301-387-3781 or at
