The Soul of AmericaFriday, June 7, 2019
WVURA Book Club

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.

We packed bags on May 15.  It was our last day this school year.  Our photo was too blurry to print, but our faithfuls showed up as usual.  See you in September!

Stonewall Country Adventure

Retirees traveled by chartered bus to visit Appalachian Glass Products, the Museum of American Glass, Ltd., the Mountaineer Military Museum, and the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum Museum.  They also had lunch at the bistro in Weston.  It was a beautiful day and a great way to see more of West Virginia.

Rosenbaum Family House Dinner

Here's our cooks for the Rosenbaum Family House Dinner.  The meals are provided for families who travel to Morgantown to be with loved ones who have a serious illness or injury and who are in WVU hospitals.  Board members cook the meal and Association members visit with families.  We try to provide a taste of home and an opportunity for fellowship.
