The Retirees Association maintains an ongoing commitment to and interest in UCSC students by raising money for the Silver Slug and Bruce Lane Memorial Scholarship Fund. The Board of Directors has designated that scholarships be directed to students who have served in the United States military. This year the Association plans to award twelve $500 scholarships to student veterans.
Members of the Retirees Association contribute to the scholarship fund in various ways. Some who benefited from the WWII GI Bill of Right have given back by contributing. Gifts are also being accepted in memory of Bruce Lane, a member of the UCSC community between 1964 and 1991. Members also donate fees earned from serving as election workers and participants in campus research projects. Retirees may donate at any time and by adding to the scholarship collection jar at our social events.

TUESDAY, MARCH 5th, is the date for the annual Silver Slugs Soup Social at the UCSC Arboretum. We’ll begin gathering about 11:30. Bring a crock-pot with your favorite recipe to share. Salads and breads also will be welcome additions to the glorious spread. Again this year, thanks to your generous contributions to the Bruce Lane Memorial Scholarship Fund, book scholarships will be awarded to eight military veteran students. Most recipients are expected to be present to accept their scholarship award and tell us about how important the recognition is to them. Invite a friend, bring your soup bowl and spoon, and look forward to a delicious lunch and rewarding program.
