The Inside Story . . .

Monroe Visit
Saturday, July 22, 2017
President Monroe at Friendship Hill

That's Colonel Monroe on the left (he won't be Chief Magistrate  until February) and Albert Gallatin on the right.  Mr. Gallatin welcomed us to Friendship Hill and was an excellent host for Colonel Monroe's visit.  Although they didn't recognize "West Virginia" University since it was 1817, the program and the reenactors were exceptional.  If you missed it, you missed a good one.

Christian Help

Retirees volunteered at  Christian Help.  They helped them get ready for the Back to School event where clothing and school supplies are distributed to Mon County children.

Flashes of Freedom

Retirees traveled by chartered bus to Pittsburgh to cruise on the Gateway Clipper.  They had dinner on board, cruised the river while being entertained by a local disc jockey, then returned to the Point in time for the Independence Day fireworks.  The dinner was delicious, the weather was perfect, the cruise was relaxing, and the fireworks were beautiful, both in the sky and reflected off the river.
