From outer space to special places: exciting year ahead for Tech Old Timers

Tech Old Timers has a full slate of interesting programs for members and their guests in the coming months.

WPI's resident astronaut Al Sacco will launch the 1996-97 schedule on Sept. 12, with a special video that details his experiences aboard the space shuttle Columbia. On Oct. 10, Clark University history Professor Douglas Little will present "A Commentary on Politics and the '96 Elections," and on Nov. 14, Dean Emeritus William R. Grogan will share his reflections on the 25th anniversary of the WPI Plan.

Barbara Sinnott of Worcester's Better Business Bureau will keep members from giving more than they wish during the holiday season with her Dec. 12 presentation "Bah Humbug! Avoiding Consumer Scams During the Holidays." On Jan. 9, Professor Emeritus David P. McKay will brighten the gloomy days of winter with a musical performance titled "Sing A Song of Worcester."

Electrical and Computer Engineering Professor David Cyganski will bring the group up to speed on Feb. 12 with a program on "Computers and the Internet," while the March 13 program, by representatives of Wachusett Brewery, will focus on information of a more sense-ual nature with "Microbreweries: What's New in Beer?" On April 10, Paul Holle, a former history professor at Worcester State College, will tickle the travel fancies with his program on "Exotic Destinations."

The year ends with the annual Ladies Day program on May 8. Susan Handy, a health educator affiliated with Fallon Community Health Plan, will present "The Healing Art of Humor."

Tech Old Timers meet in Alden Memorial at 9:45 a.m. on the second Thursday of each month, September through May (the Nov. 14 program will be held in Riley Commons). Meetings are canceled when Worcester schools are closed because of bad weather.
