Sunday, May 1, 2022---Dr. Art Bartner’s Celebration

Our USC TGLA ladies enjoyed the “Inspirations” Concert by the 2022 USC Concert Band first, before the dinner honoring Dr. Art Bartner. After the concert ended, Trojan Candy found my table outside. I put my stuff down and then walked around looking for USC TGLA members.

The first USC TGLA member I found was Mary Hall with her husband Milton.
Ann Palmer was sitting fairly close to Mary.
Trojan Candy saw Ann Proctor next.
The next entire table posed for me. Standing from left to right were Elliott Schwartz, member Sherry DeFriese, her brother Bob Leach, Marcia Montez, member Sandy Johnston, Christine Conway, and a friend. Seated were member Cheryl Schwartz and Jim Herrera.
Trojan Candy followed Sandy Johnston to another table. Sandy posed with member Rosalee Pechersky and her husband Gary.
USC TGLA member Patti Madden posed for me next.
As introductions were being made, I walked up closer to the podium. Our USCTGLA President Christine Ofiesh, who was co-chair of the Dinner Committee, was at the podium with the other co-chair Sue McKeever.
Then Trojan Candy took this picture of the “Man of Honor” Dr. Art Bartner.
Dr. Bartner walked to our table and chatted with USC TGLA member Patti Poon, her husband Dudley, and prospective new member Dr. Cathy Creasia.
Rosalee Pechersky and Patti Poon visited and then posed for me.
Nearby were Janet Eddy and her husband Jim.
It was now evening. Trojan Candy took this picture of Carol Fox.

Saturday, March 12, 2022---Day of SCervice

1426For this year's Day of SCervice, Trojan Candy and my husband Jim reported at the Joint Educational Project (JEP) House at 10:00 am. The USC Associates worked with the JEP House. We packed bags full of teaching materials for nearby students for the ReadersPLUS program. Then we wrote encouraging notes for each student. As a retired teacher, I really enjoyed filling the bags for needy students. Here is my picture of the volunteers.

1429Then, Trojan Candy walked over to Town and Gown to take pictures of my fellow USC TGLA volunteers at work. Volunteers were making beautiful "Fight On" necklaces for USC Hospital women patients. At first I started taking individual pictures. Here is Carol Fox.

1431At the next table, were Cheryl and Elliott Schwartz and Jerry Ensom.

1434Sandy Johnston started gathering all of our USC TGLA volunteers for a group shot. I took the first group picture that included Carol Fox’s son Chris and Cheryl Schwartz’s husband Elliott. In front were Sandy Johnston, Carol Fox, Christine Ofiesh, and Cheryl Schwartz. In the middle row were D’Arcy McLeod, Sharon Schmidt, Jean Getchell, Janyce Teasley, and Mary Hall. In the top Row were Chris Fox and Elliott Schwartz.

1435Chris Fox took this next picture that included Trojan Candy at the right end of the front row.

1437Chris also took this last picture which included Associate Senior Vice-President for Alumni Relations Patrick Auerbach, who just happened to visit our site at the right time. Thanks, Chris.

Our USC TGLA members volunteer throughout the year!
