Reception to welcome recent retirees to association

A reception Thursday, April 27, will welcome relatively recent retirees to the Windsor University Retirees’ Association.

The association exists to promote the interests of retirees from the ranks of faculty, librarians and upper administration, says president David Palmer, a professor emeritus in the School of Creative Arts.

“We work to represent retirees in the areas of health and pension benefits, through representation on the faculty association and with the offices of the president and of human resources,” he says. “An important aspect of our activities is the sponsoring of social events, encouraging members to maintain contacts with former colleagues.”

Invitations to join have gone to those who retired in the years 2010 through 2016. Thursday’s reception is set for 2 p.m. in Assumption Hall’s Freed-Orman Commons.
