All retirees are invited to celebrate with her on December 3, 2009 from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. in the Atrium.

January 2009 Social: Our Vice-President and long time former colleague, Mary Spijkerman, invited retiree association members for a pot luck dinner at her home on Thursday, January 29, 2009.  Our members enjoyed the visit and are thankful to Mary and her husband Jon for a wonderful evening at their home. The members who could join shared food together and chatted about the good old days at the UNTHSC.  They also shared their travel and other life experiences. Suggestion was made to hold these socials around the lunch time instead of the evening. Please let us know your preference in this regard. We are looking for volunteers to invite pot luck events for the future.
