Amid an autumn setting of gold, orange, brown and green, arranged by President-Elect Stephanie Moody, 123 members of the California Retired Teachers Association #91 of Fremont, Union City and Newark (FUN) honored three octogenarians and a nonagenarian at a recent lunch gathering. The meeting was chaired by Mary Kay Henderson who accepted the presidency for another term.
Octogenarians honored included: Irene Volbrecht, Jean Ficklin and Norma Burns. Nonagenarian Gail Moore was also recognized for her many years of service. Moore has served as Travel Organizer for Division #91 since 2000 and is currently planning a visit to the Mario Chiodo monument - Remember Them: Champions for Humanity - in Oakland. Honorees received certificates of appreciation and potted yellow roses; arranged and made by Judy Molander and Muriel Rodrigues.
Guest speaker, Karen Blount, Community Engagement Specialist for the Fremont Police Department, spoke about protection against burglaries and scams targeting mature adults.
The next luncheon/meeting of the FUN Division will be held mid-January 2012.
