WVU Night at PNC Park
We had a great time at PNC Park. The Pirates not so much. We had a nice bus ride to Pittsburgh that included a pepperoni roll and a bottle of water. We got a Pirates/WVU cap (it's the gray one in the photo) and took part in happy hour. Our seats were under cover so we didn't cook in the sun. Unfortunately, the Pirates weren't cooking either. Nine innings and six pitchers later, they lost to the St. Louis Cardinals 14-8.

At its June meeting, Book Club members discussed The Soul of America: The Battle for Our Better Angels. In this book, author Jon Meacham helps us understand the present moment in American politics and life by looking back at critical times in our history when hope overcame division and fear.

Blennerhassett Island Historical State Park
Retirees traveled to Blennerhassett Island, a West Virginia historical state park. They started the day with a tour of the museum before boarding a sternwheeler for a 20-minute boat ride to the island. There they toured the mansion and grounds.
