The Inside Story . . .

Blood Drive
Wednesday, September 28, 2022
WVURA Blood Drive

The Retirees Association  partnered with the Red Cross of America to sponsor the blood drive.  The Red Cross let us know that we had surpassed our goal in blood donors.  Our retirees turned out again.  Thanks for saving lives.

Annual Picnic
Sunday, September 25, 2022
WVURA Annual Picnic

Retirees attended the annual picnic at the Westside Senior Center.  The day started out rainy but the sun came out mid-picnic and the day was beautiful.  There were 90 registrants for the event and we were able to reconnect with our fellow retirees.  Sweet Southern Smoke in Sabraton was the caterer.  The food was excellent and the desserts provided by our members were gone in a flash.  In addition to food and drink, there were giveaway prizes and a raffle.  It was a good day!

Backpack Feeding Program

Our registered volunteers support the Scott's Run Backpack Feeding Program.  They meet every month at Scott's Run to pack weekend food for county school children in need.  We're glad to support the Scott's Run goal to ensure that no school child spends a weekend hungry.

Tracks and Yaks

Tracks and Yaks

Retirees traveled on a chartered bus to Frostburg, Maryland to ride rail bikes to Cumberland, Maryland.  It was a beautiful day in the mountains.  We coasted downhill from Frostburg to the Cumberland train station.  We rode the train back to Frostburg where we had lunch and then strolled through the quaint town. If you missed the trip, you missed a good one. 

Book - Under the Benner of Heaven
Friday, September 2, 2022
WVURA Book Club

The book for discussion at the September meeting was Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith by Jon Krakauer.  In this book, Krakauer constructs a multi-layer, bone-chilling narrative of messianic delusion, polygamy, savage violence, and unyielding faith in the isolated Mormon Fundamentalist communities.  The book has been adapted for a limited series streaming on HULU.
