Retiree Luncheon

Annual luncheon held each year for the retirees of Iowa Lakes

Each year in May, the Iowa Lakes Community College Foundation honors retirees and inducts the new “class” of retiring employees. This event is a great opportunity for the Iowa Lakes family to get together and celebrate the year’s activities and share plans for the upcoming year with colleagues.

Highlights from 2014:

  • 38 Iowa Lakes Community College retirees gathered to enjoy their annual luncheon on Friday, May 2, 2014 at the Cafeteria, Emmetsburg Campus
  • In addition to an outstanding informational address by President Valerie Newhouse, the highlight of the event is when each honoree updates the group with reflections of the past year and aspirations for the next
  • The group welcomed Bob Halverson, Hotel Restaurant and Management Professor and Program Coordinator. Bob has taught for 40+ years for the college and the Program was the FIRST in the state. 
  • President Jim Billings was in attendance! It was wonderful to see all the familiar faces and hear what everyone has been up to over the year. 
  • Special thank you to Steve Olerich and his staff for the delicious meal and the faculty and staff who served the attendees: Renee Jedlicka, Tony Stubbs, Jody Condon, Deb Weston, Rhonda Frambach and Pam Rouse.
  • Dave Petrick was on sight to provide photography opportunities for individuals and groups. 

CHALLENGE: Ron Brockmeyer invited fellow retirees to ride RAGBRAI with him!
