The Inside Story . . .


Annual Picnic
Sunday, October 3, 2021
WVURA Annual Picnic


Retirees enjoyed our sixth annual picnic and had a nice time renewing acquaintances and making new ones (ask Rudy Almasy and Carolyn Nelson front and center).  We got lots of compliments on the food.  There were giveaways and a raffle on WVU gear.  It was a beautiful day.  It started out cloudy but ended up sunny and the rain held off until after the picnic.  
If you missed it, you missed a good time. 


Book - Extra LifeFriday, October 1,2021
WVURA Book Club


For the October meeting, members will be discussed the book Extra Life: A Short History of Living Longer by Steven Johnson.  We have doubled our life expectancy in just one hundred years. This book is Steven Johnson’s attempt to understand where that progress came from. What are the forces that keep us alive longer?


Book - The Line
Friday, September 3, 2021
WVURA Book Club


The club discussed the book that the university selected for the Campus Read this fall: The Line Becomes a River: Dispatches from the Border by Francisco Cantu. "A must-read for anyone who thinks 'build a wall' is the answer to anything." -- Esquire.


Hotel California
Wednesday, September 1, 2021
Hotel California - The Original Eagles Tribute Band


Retirees traveled to the Palace Theatre in Greensburg PA to hear Hotel California.  When the Eagles stopped to catch their breath a few decades ago, Hotel California began their journey as a tribute band.  The easy-going warmth that comes from the band onstage exemplifies the Southern California sound of the 1970s. The band was excellent! If you closed your eyes, you were right back there.
