Retired Employees Association Social Events

Social events are scheduled for members on an annual basis. Retirees enjoy the Fall Celebration, Spring Fling, Bunko, day trips, fundraisers at entertainment venues, and the Texas Roadhouse luncheon which raises money for scholarships.

Executive board meetings are held in the North Lindenwood Support Center (NLSC), 315 N. Lindenwood, Olathe, Kan., on the fourth Wednesday of each month unless otherwise noted. Meetings are from 9:30 a.m.-noon.
