A great time was had by all at the 11th Annual Donuts & Notes at the College of Continuing and Professional Education at Kennesaw State University. From an art show to live entertainment, all were able to get in the holiday spirit and learn about what CCPE has to offer.

This annual event doubled as an open house event for Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, which offers educational and social opportunities for adults age 50 and older with a purpose to promote lifelong learning and continued intellectual and personal growth for retirement-age individuals. Curriculum draws from the interests, talents and experiences of older adult learners.

Art from OLLI students and instructors was on display. The Big Shanty Elementary Chorus returned to sing for the audience. Durham Fiddlers from Durham Middle School in Acworth made their first appearance at this year’s event. Also new were the Kennesaw Square Dealers, who got audience members to kick up their heels in a square-dancing demonstration.

For a current list of upcoming classes, visit or call (770) 423-3340 for more information.
