Thursday, September 15th at 9:15 a.m.  Art & Conversation Portland Art Museum:  This month, artist Arvie Smith will speak about his work, discussing pieces from his exhibition, APEX: Arvie Smith, currently on view at the Museum.  After the talk, you are welcome to see the exhibition and explore the rest of the Museum.  Coffee at 9:15 a.m.; lecture at 10:15 a.m. This series is free for adults 62 and over.  NOTE: This month’s program will be entirely in the Grand Ballroom on the third floor of the Museum’s Mark Building, which is on the corner of SW Park Ave. at Main St.

Monday, September 19th:  District-wide Fall In-Service, Sylvania Campus.  No, you don’t have to attend in-service now that you’ve retired!  However, the Retiree Network will kick off our Rose Scholarship fund raising raffle during in-service week and we will be looking for a few retiree volunteers to attend events at each campus during in-service week.  You won’t be selling anything, just handing out flyers to promote the raffle.  We’re working out final details with the PCC Foundation and the Federation.  Interested retirees can watch for a special message in your email within a few days.  But think of it this way, you will get to enjoy the socializing aspects of in-service, revisiting your ‘old campus’, seeing friends and colleagues and you won’t have to go to any meetings!  Now that’s how retirement ought to be!

Wednesday, September 28th at 11:30 a.m. Pinot & Prose Book Club discussion of our September selection, which is Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania’ by Eric Larson at Walter Mitty’s Restaurant.  For those who may have already read Dead Wake, we have also selected “The Three Year Swim Club” by Julie Checkoway to be the October selection.
