The Inside Story . . .

Book - The Professor and the MadmanWVURA Book Club
Friday, October 6, 2023

The October was The Professor and the Madman: A Tale or Murder, Insanity, and the Making of the Oxford English Dictionary by Simon Winchester.  As definitions were collected for the dictionary, one man, Dr. W. C. Minor, had submitted more than ten thousand. And more surprising, Dr, Minor, an American Civil War veteran, was also an inmate at an asylum for the criminally insane.

Retirees came through again.  All our slots were filled.  Our blood drive at the Alumni Center was a success.  We collected 34 pints of blood and saved over 90 lives.  Way to go, retirees!

WVURA Annual Picnic
Sunday, September 24, 2023

Retirees attended the annual  association picnic at the Westside Senior Center on Sunday, September 24, 2023.  They spent time renewing acquaintances and enjoying a sweet southern barbeque.  In addition to the food, there were giveaway prizes and a raffle. Though overcast, the rain held off until after the picnic.  It turned out to be a nice day and a nice time.
