Due to the present and on-going COVID-19 situation we will be cancelling our annual Spring Forum. This is in compliance with government and university policies instituted to help mitigate the spread of this perverse virus. We were so looking forward to our Spring Forum where we would have heard from Mike Von Massow, OAC Chair in Food Systems Leadership,and what he has to say about Animal Welfare and Food Waste. You can check out his food website at: http://www.foodfocusguelph.ca/.
This year’s Fall Forum brings us fascinating dips into the past by way of two speakers: The Season’s Greetings, presented by Tom Reitz, Retired Manager and Curator, Waterloo Region Museum will be tapping into our Christmas nostalgia. He’ll be sharing mages from his extensive collection of photographic postcards to illustrate Christmas decorations in homes, churches and schools of the early 1900s.
More than 30 UGRA retirees and their spouses or partners will be heading for China for another exciting adventure. Nexus Holidays will guide them from Shanghai to Beijing and back over the course of seventeen days. Stay tuned for pictures and the exciting report.
Join President Franco J. Vaccarino for an afternoon social to renew old acquaintances and hear what’s new and changing at the University and enjoy some of those famous Hospitality refreshments. RSVP (link also in the spring newsletter).
While part of the CURAC Conference, this session on the Library Archives and the refreshment break following are free and open to all UGRA members.
The University of Guelph Retirees Association is proud to host the 2019 conference and AGM of the College and University Retiree Associations of Canada/Associations de retraités des universités et collèges du Canada (CURAC/ARUCC) May 22 to 24 on the Guelph campus.
