Each of our "newbies" expressed great pleasure at their retirement and shared their plans for the future, One even has plans for performing on stage as a comedienne. Many just want to relax and enjoy having more "me" time for now.
REF wishes much happiness to those above as well
as all the retirees of the last 3 years who were not able to attend.
The celebration was originally planned to be in a tent
, but, because of a glitch in communications, we ended up inside. There were no complaints, and all were grateful for the AC. We enjoyed a delicious brunch and some wonderful fellowship. There was so much joy and moving around to converse that it wasn't possible to photo each of the 8 tables. Sorry if you were there but your photo isn't here.
The brunch was provided courtesy of REF, but
toward next year's 2 REF $1,000 scholarships
. Thanks to all for your generousity. Any of you who were unable to attend and would like to contribute can find info here:
Many thanks to Amy Dezenzo and the REF Activities Committee (Cissy Hudzik, Dick Dezenzo. Lois Neville) for planning the event and
best wishes to Amy
who is recovering from surgery and wasn't able to attend the brunch.
In addition, many thanks to Donna Coble and Linda Chandler, our Membershio Committee, for preparing and mailing out the 93 invitations to retirees of the past 3 years. Sorry that all could not attend.
