PARTA Newsletter – September, 2022

President’s Message
So….. we have experienced our Summer 2022 as retirees and I welcome you back to what is, hopefully, a little more “normal” existence – whatever that is.
My husband and I just returned from a group bus tour to Haida Gwaii for 11 days and then a short trip for a family birthday to Calgary. We have been very cautious during the pandemic and it was nice to take a road trip and meet some new people. However, I must admit, I can hardly wait to start seeing our regular friends and colleagues again. Hopefully, this finds you all well and doing what you enjoy with who you love.
