Holiday Greetings from the New WPSBC Alumni Communications Team

Hello to all members of the Western Pennsylvania School for Blind Children Alumni Association.

President  Al Pietrolungo has established a WPSBC Alumni Communications Team.  The Team consists of: Ed Facemyer, Chair, and members: Tom Hesley, Ted Crum and Sue Etters.  Our goal is to make sure everyone receives up to date  information and  news on a regular basis and to update our membership contact list.    Also, we want to encourage all of you to get in touch with us with any information you would like us to share with your fellow members.   To start, we will use email, the auto phone service, and our web site to reach out to you.  We want to wish you a  joyous holiday season and a happy and prosperous new year.

Regarding the holidays, the Golden Triangle Council of the Blind is inviting members of the alumni association to come to GTCB’s holiday party on Saturday, December 8.  The party will be held at Lombardozzi’s restaurant at 4786 Liberty Avenue from 1 pm to 4 pm, and the cost is $20.  If you plan to attend, please send a check for $20 per person made out to GTCB and mail it to Judy Zaken at 169 Crestview Drive, Pittsburgh, pa 15236.  The deadline is December 1.  There will be a gift exchange at the party.  If you wish to participate in the gift exchange, please bring a gift valued at about $15.
