Backpack Feeding Program

School is back in session and it’s time again for our volunteer commitment at Scott’s Run Settlement House for the Backpack Feeding Program. Thank goodness for new volunteers. We were shorthanded since several of our volunteers are on the Retirees Association trip to Colorado. But the newbies came through with flying colors. If you’d like to know more about the program, see Backpack Feeding Program


Picnic Basket Sunday, September 18, 2016
Annual Picnic

You’ve heard it hundreds of times. It’s better to be safe than sorry. On Friday before the picnic, the weather service was calling for severe thunderstorms during the time scheduled for our picnic. So, being safe, we cancelled. Now, we’re sorry we did. Not only was there no thunderstorms, there was no rain!! Oh, well. We’ll try again next year.


Book - Benjamin Franklin Friday, September 2, 2016
WVURA Book Club

The Book Club held its September meeting and discussed Benjamin Franklin: An American Life by Walter Isaacson. New members are welcome at any meeting. For details, see Book Club.


Black Bears Mascot Saturday, August 6, 2016
Black Bears Baseball Game

Retirees enjoyed a Black Bears baseball game on August 6. The mascot had an easy time getting the crowd involved. It was an exciting game with the Black Bears breaking their losing streak at the bottom of the tenth inning.

Black Bears Sunset We had very good seats for the game and for the view of a spectacular sunset. In addition to the sunglasses cases that were given to fans, we even had the winning row for a gift certificate for food delivery. It was perfect weather and an exciting game.


Christian Help Wednesday, August 3, 2016
Christian Help Back to School Program

Our volunteers helped the staff at Christian Help get ready for their Back to School distribution. This time they sorted shoes, underwear, and clothes so that they were easy to distribute to Monongalia County school children.

School Backpack Program

Retirees stocked school backpacks at Scott’s Run for the Monongalia County school children in grades Pre-K though 12. We have our dedicated core group of volunteers that show up no matter what – even on short notice. It’s a good group and, although we work hard, we always laugh and have fun. Thanks, team! You did it again!


Fireworks 3 Monday, July 4, 2016
Fire on the Water


Fireworks 1 Get ready for the BOOM! Retirees traveled by bus to Pittsburgh for fireworks on the fourth. They had an excellent dinner aboard the Gateway Clipper. (Don’t you just want to take a sip of that drink?)

Fireworks 2 It had been raining during the bus ride but it slowed down enough so that retirees could sit outside and enjoy the river cruise and the entertainment. And it stopped just in time for the fireworks.

The Pittsburgh fireworks are always excellent but fireworks on the water are amazing. The fireworks lit up the Pittsburgh skyline and were reflected on the water. Oohs and aahs all around. Worth the trip!
