Enrichment Day

Joy Johnson Guest Speaker ALO Enrichment Day

Registration Is Now Closed!

This year there will be a change in venue for Enrichment Day, February 27th. Oak Hills Country Club has graciously agreed to provide Assistance League with a hot plated lunch, including drink and cookies for dessert; as well as, pastries and coffee in the morning for a reasonable price. They will partition off a gaming area to accommodate Bunco, Bridge, and Mahjong so each group will have its own space.

Joy Johnson, author of The Boob Girls series, was chosen to be our speaker.

Joy Johnson is over 70 now. With her husband, Dr. Marvin Johnson, she co-founded two non-profit organizations in Omaha, Neb., Centering Corporation and Ted E. Bear Hollow. Joy is a nationally-known speaker and has written or edited more than 100 books on grief, mostly for children.

The main characters in Joy’s novels, the Burned Out Old Broad books, are affectionately called the BOOB Girls. Joy believes that older, seasoned women are beautiful too!

The Johnsons are a blended family with six children, nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. For years now Bernese Mountain Dogs have been their colleagues and companions in work and play.
