Curriculum Highlights

PLATO Spring Open House

SAVE the DATE2019 Spring Open House is coming Wednesday, February 20, from 1:30 - 3:00 p.m. at Madison Senior Center.

In the past this event was called the Spring Preview, but the scope of this event has expanded to include more facets of PLATO, so the name has changed to Open House. The second reason for the change in name was because many members had enrolled in courses as soon as they were announced on the web and in the weekly email. The Committee wanted to make sure that all members understood that enrollment opened as soon as the course lists were posted. The name Preview did not accurately describe the event as well as the name Open House.

There are changes in the format of the Open House. Members will not pick up PLATO folders anymore, but they can pick up course lists at the Curriculum Table. PLATO folders are only handed out to new members at the Membership Table.

There is no Q and A session but new members are encouraged to stop at the Board Table to find out more about PLATO. They can then visit any Committee Table to find out about a specific PLATO committee.

So, please join us at the Spring Open House where members can:

  • Talk with Course Coordinators & discuss their Spring class offerings.
  • Chat with Committee representatives about upcoming activities and volunteer opportunities.
  • Re-connect with PLATO colleagues.
  • Enjoy light refreshments available throughout the afternoon.

Come any time between 1:30 and 3:00 pm.   As you enter the Senior Center stop at the Curriculum table to pick up a schedule of all the Spring courses. Then freely move from table to table on the first floor to meet and talk to the course coordinators. Also stop at the different Committee tables to find out information about each Committee.

PLATO offers many activities and opportunities to volunteer. Volunteers keep all our activities going strong. Please consider volunteering for one.

The Special Events Committee will host refreshments, and seating will be available throughout the afternoon.

This event is for PLATO members (and potential members) and their guests. It is open to the public.
