This second annual reception for MSUE retirees was co-sponsored by ESP and the MSUE administration and held at the Kellogg Center prior to the All-University Retiree Luncheon. It drew a large crowd of retirees, some just entering retirement and others with long tenures in that status. For instance, Pat Ralston, former MSUE Director was present along with Gordon Guyer, our very own come and go retiree! Old timers such as Pat LaFlame, and John Worthington were there, along with a whole new batch of people just now starting their retirement period. Maggie Bethel, MSUE Director and Ann Hinsdale-Knisel, ESP President greeted the group, recognized new retirees and ESP life members and encouraged continuing interaction with MSUE. This event is an annual occasion to meet old friends and colleagues….think about coming next year! And if you would like to become involved in planning future retiree activities, contact Jake Wamhoff, current Life Member Chair of ESP.
