Storyteller, columnist, writer and amateur historian John Case will entertain attendees on a walking tour of Olde Towne Slidell through historic Greenwood Cemetery on April 28 from 3-4:30 p.m. Case is the author of “Bogue Chitto Flats” and “Saucered Coffee, Puffed and Chilled.”
The tour is part of the Ochsner Institute for Lifelong Learning at LSU, Slidell Camellia Chapter. The institute is one of 124 university-affiliated programs developed for adults 50 and older. Its mission is to foster lifelong learning and individual growth by creating learning opportunities that enrich life.
Clients should wear comfortable walking shoes and be prepared to walk approximately 250 yards, approximately 5-10 minutes at a time. Participants are encouraged to bring a lawn chair. Parking is available at the corner of Second and Guzman streets in Olde Towne.
The visit is free, but anyone interested in the activities of the institute – in person and/or online – should consider becoming a member of the Slidell Camellia Chapter for $50 per year. After July 1, a small supplement will be charged for lessons. Sign up for the tour or join the Slidell Camellia chapter by calling (225) 578-2500. The chapter is governed by a St. Tammany-based advisory board under the leadership of President Margo Guillot.
