Every six months or so for about the last five years, a group of retirees (R) from the Accounting and Computer Education (ACE) department have been connecting over the lunch buffet at Aaltos Garden Cafe on McPhillips.
Though all are thoroughly enjoying retirement, only Doug, Keith, Valdi, John, and Louis have really put their feet up. Jean-René has continued to do some ICT consulting since retiring last year. Jurgen, busier than ever as the Returning Officer for Elmwood-Transcona, gave us an insider’s glimpse of the electoral process and our federal tax dollars at work. Guy Dugas, who is still working at the College on a contract basis, shared all the latest about what’s happening on campus. And though an ever-increasing variety of aches, pains, and minor annoyances did creep into the conversation, for the most part, talk of tennis, golf, badminton, family, and cottage life reminded us that life is good.
