Retirees Celebrate 'NOT Back to School' Thursday

on August 15, 2014 - 8:14am

Celebrating Thursday's 'NOT Back to School' breakfast, Inez Ross and Bill Hudson gather with other retired educators. Hudson founded the annual event 40 years ago. He called a few retirees and they called others, and it grew into the big event it is today. Many thanks go to retiree Judy Crocker who has been the organizer of this annual event for years. The retirees share breakfast at Kelly Hall at Trinity on the Hill, meet new retirees and visit after their no agenda, no dues, no obligation meeting. Photo by Karyl Ann Armbruster
