Our volunteers came through again. We had it easy this time. With only 16 totes to fill and lots of people, we got done early. Our group keeps growing with lots of new faces. We always work hard but have a good time. Many hands make light work. Thanks, team.
Board members held their holiday luncheon on December 15 at the Atria Restaurant. Prior to the luncheon, the board held its monthly meeting. President Gee joined the luncheon and shared with the board his vision for the Association. The president reiterated the importance of retirees to the institution and the community and reminds retirees to stay connected. We hope to see you in the New Year.

Gift Wrapping Party
Our volunteers came through again to support the Hoss Foundation Gift Project.
They volunteered for the Wrapping Party where they helped wrap gifts for families
in the area who are facing hardships. Our volunteers also donated supplies like
boxes, wrapping paper, and tape. Jeff Hostetler stopped by to thank the group.
Thanks from the Association too. You represent us well. Go team!

Members attended A Winter Gala: A Choral Celebration of the Season at the Creative Arts Center. The program included presentations by the community choir, the women’s choir, the men’s chorus, the chamber singers, and the Morgantown Children’s and Youth Choir. Afterwards they gathered for a holiday reception in the Mesaros gallery. It was a wonderful way to start the holiday season.
