Black Bears Game
Members of the Retirees Association attended WVU Band Night at the Monongalia County Ballpark and watched the Black Bears take on the Mahoning Valley Scrappers, an affiliate of the Cleveland Indians. At the suggestion of retirees, there was also a tailgate before the game. You can see some of our retirees in the tailgate photo above.

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.

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.
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.
