Annual Winter Luncheon

On December 6th, 42 of our members assembled at Jackson’s (Jericho Turnpike, Commack) to enjoy a delicious lunch and to meet and greet former colleagues.  Our Annual Winter Luncheon is a perfect opportunity to reconnect with fellow retirees and to share news.  A great time was had by all and the staff at Jackson’s was warm and welcoming.  A surprise visit by Chris Pendergast was a highlight of the afternoon.  This is the 20th anniversary of his famous “Ride for Life” – he intends to repeat his journey to Washington D.C. again this year.  Dave Hosie entertained us with a Christmas poem.  A dozen of our members generously donated gifts for our raffle.  Ticket sales generated $265 for our Scholarship Fund.  Many thanks to those who brought gifts and to those who bought tickets.  Our next get-together will be in the spring – watch the mail for the newsletter announcing date and place – hope to see you then.
