Oct 22nd, Business Meeting, 1:00 p.m. Walter Mitty’s, we have important items on the October agenda! Gary Lesniak has announced that after umpteen years as President of the Retiree Network he wishes to step aside and give someone else the opportunity to serve as President. With only a small group of us present at the September meeting, we decided that the matter should be tabled until the October meeting and that we should make an effort to get as many retirees as possible to that meeting. Please join us!
