It seems to me that we all went back to school the Tuesday after Labor Day and no earlier. I started back at San Jose State as late as September 19. Have you noticed that most schools now start back in August? I think it’s because school teachers want the students to maintain knowledge they would otherwise forget by being away from school for 3 months. That also means that the schools should let students out in June—only two months between grades that way. My thought is that if the schools continue to start earlier, they will run into the unfinished previous semester! Who’s on first?
On a more practical note, please remember to do volunteer work on AARP Service Day, September 11. You can volunteer with a group or on your own. Look for opportunities in the AARP bulletin/ newspaper and the Campbell Express or the Campbell Reporter. Find activities you can get other AARP members to get involved in with you.
Last month, two of you stepped up to take the positions of Vice-President and Treasurer. We now have two members who are interested in the position of Assistant Treasurer. It’s possible we may even have someone to plan the post-meeting lunches. We are still looking for someone to direct the Publicity committee. If you or someone you know is interested, please contact Jan DeLucchi.
We had a wonderful meeting last month with the Boomerang Barber Shop quartet. Please share any ideas for speakers with our new Vice-President, Paul Levine.
