I am attending this program sept. 13-18. It will be my first experience with Road Scholar. Will be going alone--don't know anyone. Anybody else signed up for this week?

You will make friends and enjoy the program. It's a great one.

Vada, My husband and I will also be newbies attending the Ozark experience. See you in Arkansas.

Is anyone going or has anyone been on this Ozark Experience...going Sept 6-11, 2015.

Hi Laurel. I attended this program in May of this year and I loved it!
Adrienne Burchett Aug 11, 2015 at 11:37 AM

Our group really enjoyed the music and the craft activities and the program directors were super! It's a beautiful area, the food was great, and I intend to visit again someday!

My wife, Yanju Chen, is very sensitive to cold. She drinks only warm water and eats only heated food. Please advise those in charge of program #4555RJ

Anyone enrolled in this program for the May 17th through 22nd dates?

Cecelia Wavrick Dec 30, 2014 at 11:33 AM

I need a ride to Little Rock immediately after the program close on 5/8 in order to catch a train later that night. Anyone heading right back to LR that day?

I have enrolled in the program that starts Sun., May 4, 2014 but will arrive in Little Rock a day early on Sat. Is anyone else arranging transportation from LR to the Ozark Folk Center? I need a ride. Thanks, Jill

Looking forward to this program and meeting new friends and learning about the culture in the Ozarks.
