Trips, personal hours between scheduled ORICL hours

Now that the rate of COVID-19 infections in Tennessee is relatively low, the Oak Ridge Institute for Continuing Learning (ORICL) is offering two bus trips to entertainment and education sites for the first time in two years this summer.

ORICL members must pay a fee for each trip.

The trip on June 21 will take registrants to the Sequoyah Birthplace Museum in Vonore in the Cherokee overhill area, as well as to the Sweetwater Valley Dairy Farm, where lunch and cheese can be bought. ORICL members who sign up for the August 25 trip will visit the Cumberland County Playhouse in Crossville and then enjoy a fun “Leading Ladies” show after lunch.

The summer semester, which runs from June 6 to July 29, offers 56 courses, of which 43 full-time, two hybrid and 13 zoom courses. Most in-person courses take place on the Oak Ridge Branch Campus at Roane State Community College, 701 Briarcliff Ave., or at the Oak Ridge Art Center. Online registration opens on April 19. Anyone wishing to become an ORICL member this summer must pay a registration fee of $ 60 either by check or online.
