Retirees Gather at Kerney Campus
Sept. 18, 2008
Patricia Donohue and Vice President Beverly Richardson had a chance to connect
with 12 on-the-go MCCC retirees at a mini-reunion at the James Kerney Campus
on Sept. 18. They discussed various college initiatives, while learning what
retirees have been doing with their "life after Mercer." They all
enjoyed a delectable lunch prepared by Mercer's JKC culinary arts students.
Dr. Donohue used the luncheon as an opportunity to spread the word about Mercer's new Annual Giving Campaign and the college's upcoming Annual Report to the Community on December 4. "It is important that we share our success stories and let others know the difference we make in helping to create bright futures for our students who come from all walks of life," President Donohue said.
Mercer's retirees have developed a vibrant network for staying in touch. HelenMarie Dolton and Diane Armington began meeting for lunch after they both retired in 1992. Soon, other retirees joined them and the group now meets on the third Thursday of every month at Sunny Gardens Chinese Restaurant. Dolton reports that the event draws up to 14 retirees monthly. She encourages newer retirees to join them.
