Pioneers of RG&E Newsletter - 10/22/2019

A Newsletter for Retirees * Also posted at www.pioneersofrge.com
Hello friends,
   Happy Fall! It has been a while since I've sent anything out. How's everyone doing?
   I don't think I saw any pictures from the picnic, but the picnic went well. We had 195 show up this year. 
   On the personal side, this year I found out I have the BRCA1 genetic mutation and I have been preoccupied researching and scheduling preventative surgeries to reduce my risk of breast cancer and ovarian cancer, so things have been a bit busy, but the journey is going well. I'm working on an informative site that I hope to share soon.
   For those of you on Facebook - our group is HERE.
PS - Don't forget these newsletters are also posted at www.pioneersofrge.com

Prior to our marriage in June of 1956, Gwen ( maiden name Lee ) worked for about 5 years at 89 East Avenue in the cashiers department under Paul Briggs.
