The Emeritus Association Annual Buffet Dinner
November 6, 2009
Ensemble "To Make Us Proud"
Director Michael Sokol, piano accompaniest John Cozza and the CSUS Opera Workshop performed to standing ovation. The festive evening welcomed two new life members, Barbara Arnstine and Sharon Alexander, emeriti of the College of Education. New members were Priscilla Alexander, Ann Haffer, Ilene Conrad-Muller, Geri Welch, James Bosco, Duane Campbell, Joseph Morrow, Doris Ozuna, Rodney Sime, Valerie Wheeler, and Murray Work. In spite of a vicious attack by dogs, Eddie Cajucom limped into the Alumni Center with a great smile.
Karyn Domich and Lynda White performed their usual magic greeting people at the entrance with all the materials for the evening organized splendidly. Jean Torcom performed the wondrous feat of presenting members with their new 2010 memberships nearly two months early and Peter Shattuck chose the table wines and awarded 7 door prizes. Joseph Gibson, the evening's empressario, arranged for the meals and entertainment. Alan Wade provided considerable tongue-in-cheek humor as the master of ceremonies.
