sallieThe SUN welcomes Sallie Rodman as a copy editor and Jim Worsham as a reporter. Geoff Carr, a reporter, is on a leave of absence for health reasons. We hope he returns soon.
On becoming aware of my need for
drivers, my four-year-old great-grandson, Taven said, “When I get bigger, I will have a blue car ‘cause it’s my favorite color and I will drive you wherever you want to go.” Folks, enjoy your grandkids before they become

We enrolled 165 NEW members to OLLI this Fall. The SUN plans to feature more NEWBIES in future issues. The SUN staff congratulates the new executive board elected at our annual membership
meeting. OLLI at CSULB has grown and prospered under the leadership
of Malcolm Green for the last four years. Here’s to more sucessful years.
Richard Black, a longtime member of the governing council from Pine Ave, retired from OLLI. He submitted a poem - see The SUN.
