This photograph was taken at the Nash in Inglewood, celebrating Deborah Dean's retirement from the University earlier this year. There was a group of us, mostly from Libraries and Cultural Resources, but who also were involved with the Union, who enjoyed getting together, frequently over meals. The group did vary, but most of us did get together to celebrate Leslie's birthday on June 20th (her birthday was the 19th), this time at the Beltline Diner, it was a great lunch, lots of laughter. It will be a day I will treasure.

This photograph was taken at the Nash in Inglewood. We were celebrating the retirement of Deborah Dean in March. There was a group of us, from different departments of LCR, but for the most part were involved with the Local, who went for lunch periodically. We also liked to celebrate occasions. In this case Deb's retirement, the next time we all got together was to celebrate Leslie's birthday. We all met at the Beltline Diner on June 20th. What I remember is that there was lots of laughter, what more could one want? It is a good memory and meals out will not be the same without Les.
