Back to Normal in the Fall

The Boston College Retired Faculty Association is happy to announce that our Program Meetings and Topical Seminar Meetings (see schedule below) will be held at 300 Hammond Pond Parkway in Newton.  This is also the location of the new BCARF office.  The office is the first office on your left as you enter the building.  Faculty are welcome to use the resources there.  This room is also the site of the monthly Book Club meetings. See photos of the new office below.

Once again, a light buffet lunch will be served at both the the Program Meetings and the Topical Seminar Meetings. Lunch begins at 11:30 AM, followed by the meeting at noon.  We all look forward to once again seeing our colleagues in person.
