I attended my first breakfast with Free Press retirees at Riverdale Restaurant Wednesday morning and won a cool $5.
Invested a buck on the 50-50 draw and came home with $5 after several tickets to win a blue bill were also drawn.
Beginner’s Luck? Well, I was at a lucky table with four winners out of six diners.
Money helped pay for my breakfast.
Great to see some of the old gang. Met Mac Haig for the first time. Heard a lot about him while in the Free Press newsroom.
Lots to talk about but there wasn’t a lot of talk about The Free Press.
Trips to Florida, health, deaths were some of the topics. But also Fontana, French Immersion and Man U soccer.
Attendees also brought items for the food bank.
The retirees meet once a month for breakfast at Riverdale. It’s the first Wednesday of the month at 8:30 if anyone wants to join us.
