Our retired teacher group skipped a meeting in August so when we got together today we had lots to talk about and catch up on. The most common thread of conversation was how much we missed not meeting in August and how we all look forward to our monthly get togethers.
The one thing we all have in common is that we are all retired women from Packemin H.S. Packemin is large and many of us did not know each other or had barely said more than hello to one another in all the years we worked at the same address. Our group includes former teachers, secretaries, school aides, lab assistants, and cafeteria workers. In retirement our former jobs don't matter.
We started this group several years ago and have gone to many different places but we recently found our "home." Ben's in Bay Terrace not only has good food and good service but lets us use a private room in the rear of the restaurant where we take advantage of lunch menu, and have the space to walk around, talk to everyone and stay as long as we want.
Any female retiree's from Packemin are welcome to join us.
