Retirees Stay Active to Support the College and Each Other

The formation of the Lane Retirees Association was started with the help of former Lane employee, Bob Way. He envisioned an organization that could provide an opportunity for retirees to keep in touch with each other, to maintain communication with the college, and to socialize in group activities. With President Spilde's support and encouragement, the Lane Retirees Association became a reality in February of 2003. "Our number one goal is to have fun," said Bob.

Anyone who has retired from Lane Community College or was employed at Lane for 10 years or more is eligible to become a member of the Lane Retirees Association. Members stay in touch through special interest meetings and activities, a quarterly newsletter and an annual luncheon held in the spring. 

If you would like join the Retirees Association, or renew your annual membership, you can do this online by  clicking the "Give Now" link on the left and selecting "LCC Retiree's Association Fund" from the designation drop-down box.
