DURA provides members with two catered lunches on campus each year, one in the Spring and the other at Christmas time. Entertainment or a guest speaker is provided.
Members can attend two or three off-campus outings each year; usually a bus trip in fall and spring and a theater outing.
As membership grows additional activities may be offered.
Please feel free to contact any Events Committee member with your suggestions for activities.
Message from Our New President - Terry Tatrai
Our Spring Luncheon and Pirate game were great successes!
Our October 16 Fall Trip to the Northeast PA wineries was enjoyed by 25 retirees and friends ! It was great fun and we will soon be planning an event for Spring 2019 !
Important DATES: DURA's Christmas lunch will be held on December 19, 2018, so please save that date. More information will be sent to you... Also, put April 25, 2019 on your calendar for the Spring Luncheon.
The new Board members are looking forward to more involvement and new ideas. We have tabulated the results of the surveys received and will use the responses in planning future events. We look forward to receiving feedback from our members. Please encourage your friends to join us. Be sure to check out our web pages at: www.duq.edu/retirees for upcoming and past events.
The annual dues are $20. Our new Treasurer, John Sucha, has made some great improvements. Dues can now be paid online.
Our annual dues help with covering entertainment, keeping the cost of on-campus lunches reasonable, and other DURA expenses. We strive to keep the cost on all events as low as possible. We hope that you will continue to support our events.
