Newsletter of University of Richmond's Osher Lifelong Learning Institute
The Osher Insider is a newsletter intended to share information, to foster a sense of community, to enhance recruitment and to expand leadership and involvement in the Osher programs at the University of Richmond. It is published in May, September and January.
The newsletter belongs to all Osher members and therefore all are encouraged to participate by suggesting article topics, by authoring articles (we would love your stories about favorite Osher experiences!) and by offering suggestions for improvement.
We are most grateful for the help and support of the SPCS Marketing staff in publishing the newsletter online.The Osher editors welcome your input. Please feel free to contact us.

Rarely is a connection made between Georgian architecture, a Civil War battle, and the winegrowing industry. However, that is exactly what has been forged among Woodlawn Plantation, Annefield Vineyards, Hunting Creek Vineyards, and Staunton River Battlefield State Park which historically and physically connects these two Southside localities.
If you’ve seen Tim Hanger’s wonderful photos, either in the Osher Insider or as a member of the Osher hikers, you know he is all over campus - taking classes, exercising, and taking pictures for the Osher office as well as for our e-newsletter.
