THANK YOU TO ALL
posted 6 November 2019)
Thank you to all, especially to Suzanne Fricke (AIS Class of 1972 and former Corresponding Secretary) and Katherine Arens (AES Class of 1979 and current Recording Secretary), for the wonderful retirement tribute! I am overwhelmed by all the messages afterwards from everyone on Facebook...in addition to the emails, texts, and telephone calls. It was an honor to be on the board for the past 14 years, to include serving as Association President. The whole experience was an incredible journey!!
I would not have been as successful without your support and love, and I enjoyed every moment on the board and with our alumni family. While I had been planning my retirement for a year, it was not because of any health issues but because it was time for me to move on. I appreciate your concern and wanted to let you know I believe I'm still in great health.
My husband and I will be leaving shortly on our "retirement cruise!" It is purely coincidental that we both retired on the same day (1 November) - five years apart! When we return home, I will turn into Casper the Friendly Ghost and remain supportive of the board and association - quietly in the background - however I may be of help. Looking forward to seeing you again at our alumni socials and of course, at our reunions!!
