A letter from Oasis President, Paul Weiss

Looking through our robust summer catalog, you will likely flip through pages until you find the programs and activities that are “your Oasis.” For some people, “their Oasis” is a series of history classes, an exercise class, a discussion group, or perhaps a volunteer opportunity.

We hope you find each other regardless of how you find yourself at Oasis. One of the well-documented ways to “age well” is to stay socially connected with people with shared interests, activities, and experiences which is core to everything we do at Oasis.

Our online classes are all live interactive experiences that invite the possibility of new interpersonal connections, as opposed to recorded classes that do not. The power of being with others, of seeing others and being seen, of sharing your opinions, questions, or comments, and hearing and thinking about thoughts and ideas is part of the Oasis experience. As you look through our Summer catalog, I hope you take the opportunity to stretch your interests, try something new, and perhaps meet new friends in
the process!

Warmest Regards,
Paul Weiss
Oasis President
