This past fall, a few retirees gathered together to discuss the idea of forming a group of retired NOVA faculty and staff to keep in touch, foster social interaction and provide presumed accumulated wisdom in support of the College and the students. The result of this meeting was the formation of A.F.T.E.R., Association of Former Teachers and Employees in Retirement.
A.F.T.E.R had its first meeting this past spring. John Ruffino graciously sponsored the luncheon and is helping the group become a formal branch of the College. Participants had a good time and are now in the process of planning fall events.
One of their first hurdles is gathering contact information for all NOVA retirees. If you are retired and would like to join A.F.T.E.R. or know of someone who is retired from the College and would like to join, please send Barbara Saperstone an email at firstname.lastname@example.org requesting to be added to the mailing list.
A.F.T.E.R. looks forward to hearing from you!
