Our fall events are well underway: Early in October, twenty-five of us joined Daniel Aonso for a one hour presentation on the "Queen of Soul," Aretha Franklin. A few days later, ten of us spent an enjoyable afternoon talking, laughing, and playing on-line Bingo.

Thanks to you, our online auction was a huge success; we raised $1545.00 which we have put towards the Retirees Scholarship Fund. Not only that, we had more than 3,000 visitors to the auction site - we advertised it to the entire college community and to the GBC Foundation. We thank them for their support.
