"I would like you and all those who made Retiree Connection possible to know how much I appreciate the information, opportunities, and connections I can continue to have with GVSU through this program. I also enjoy the new website. It is pleasant to view, easy to navigate, and very helpful in keeping me up to date on the university events that are of interest to me. Thanks again for all your work and efforts."
