The Retirees' Newsletter
The Faculty and Librarian Retirees' Association, University of Windsor, Windsor, Canada
Issue # 21 -- February, 1997
A MEMBERSHIP LIST IS IN
THIS ISSUE AT PAGES 9-10
The list includes 138 names. All but a few are fully paid-up members. It is assumed that the few who have not yet paid dues for the current year have simply overlooked them, and a reminder in the form of a personal note is being sent to them with this issue.
The list on pages 9 and 10 is meant to be detachable if you wish to keep it in your files.
We are saddened to report the recent deaths of two retired members of the University faculty. Claude Louis Vincent taught in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology. He died at his home in Windsor on December 10, 1996. He was an active member of this Association and had been in attendance at the Annual General Meeting in October.
Rev. Maurice Adrian Record, C.S.B., taught, until 1974, in the Department of Psychology. He died on January 31, 1997, in Toronto.
A REGULAR FEATURE
THE LETTER BOX
BILL AND BETTY COLBORNE TRAVEL IN TURKEY
Our travels this year took us to Turkey. It is a fascinating country, rich in history. After a few days visiting the fabulous treasures in Istanbul, we made our way wouth to the Mediterranean, where we had four days of R and R at a resort. Almost daily we were confronted by the engineering works of the Romans. Their town planning puts us to shame.
It was an experience that shouldn't be missed. However, the clean air of Port Elgin was very welcome after the pollution of Istanbul (population 15 million).
LEONARD AND BIRGIT KROON
Readers may recall the brief article included in Newsletter #19, on the home which Leonard Kroon built on Walpole Island and which was featured in an interview on CBC recently. Recently the Kroons sent to The Newsletter a striking aerial view picture of the house and grounds. They are spending the winter in Leesburg, Florida.
PETER AND JEAN SONNENFELD
The Sonnenfelds sent a most interesting letter, too detailed to include in full. Some highlights: Peter's health is improving rapidly, which has allowed them to do some travelling. They sold their home in Windsor, so their move to Toronto is now complete. Jean has adapted quickly "to driving in downtown Toronto traffic, competing with taxis, rollerbladers, bicyclists, trucks, pedestrians, and dodging the nearly ubiquitous signs prohibiting left-turns.
RECENT NEW MEMBERS WELCOMED
Seven of the twelve people eligible to join the Association by reason of being covered by the same pension plan as faculty and librarians, have joined the Association at this time. Their names are included in the list on pages 9 and 10. The group includes some who retired from senior administration in the University of Windsor, and some who retired from the affiliated Assumption University.
On behalf of the membership at large, the Executive of the Association warmly welcomes these new members, and looks forward to their participation in all of the Association's activities.
EMAIL ADDRESSES OF ASSOCIATION MEMBERS
A list of email addresses will be posted soon on the Association's web site. If your address is missing from the list, just contact The Newsletter and we will add it.
