Fiddler on the Loose – June 14, 2022

Finally, after COVID has delayed our theatre outings, we’re back! The CSA Retirees Club invites you to join us on Tuesday, June 14, 2022 at 2:00 for an afternoon of fun and merriment in Cambridge at the Hamilton Family Theatre Cambridge for a performance of Fiddler on the Loose

About the show: “Anchored by the extraordinary talents of fiddler and showman Jesse Grandmont, Fiddler on the Loose is a gregarious musical variety show that is sure to raise the roof!  With its stirring blend of music, dancing, comedy, and of course, fantastic fiddling, this lively revue features over 60 songs running the gamut of genres from country and bluegrass to Celtic, classical, pop, and more. The eclectic song list moves seamlessly through memorable tunes like “Dust in the Wind,” “Devil Went Down to Georgia,” “Snowbird,” “Misty,” “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” “Orange Blossom Special,” “King of the Road,” and many, many more. Don’t miss this high-energy musical extravaganza, but be warned – this show may contain scenes of gratuitous violins!”

The performance is offered in a “reduced capacity, proof of vaccination required” environment. At only $25 per person, tickets are sure to go fast.  Please indicate your interest in attending by sending payment to Susan Morley by May 14th.

Mo Polansky 100 Years Young

Retiree Mo Polansky turned 100 this April. We celebrated his birthday with a Virtual Zoom Party with 25 guests including current CSA Group CEO David Weinstein who congratulated Mo on behalf of the organization. Many shared their best wishes and some shared stories of their days working alongside Mo.

We’ve set up a page/tab on this web site called Mo Turns 100. Please check out the photos, links to articles about Mo and comments from his many former colleagues.

If you were unable to attend or simply want to leave a message for Mo please go to the Mo Turns 100 page and leave a comment.

Exciting Announcement re Zoom for 2021

Your Retiree Executive have just extended our Zoom subscription for the rest of the year.  This will allow us to continue to run Zoom Socials on a regular basis.

On January 13th, 15 people joined our Zoom Social, spending almost 2 hours sharing their views on various topics.  We even had 2 of our nonagenarians (that’s someone in their nineties) telling tales of CSA days of yore.  Did you know that some CSA staff were once housed in a former Planter’s Peanuts factory?  You needed to protect your lunch (think camping) as not all of the previous inhabitants had left.

Zoom is easy to use and requires little preparation.  To be able to use Zoom, you’ll need a smartphone, tablet or computer with a camera and microphone.  Don’t have a computer?  That’s okay, we have the ability for people to call in by phone.

Make sure that you are kept up-to-date by subscribing to this website.  To subscribe click on the “+ Follow” in the lower right-hand corner of this webpage.  You’ll be asked to provide your e-mail address.  You’ll receive an-mail whenever we post to the website.

Keep an eye out for an announcement on our February Zoom Social.
