Karen and Albert Fallon will host the next Saudi Aramco Annuitant's Reunion which will be held in Las Vegas at the Paris Hotel and Casino, right on the heart of the Strip.

Some 400 Saudi Aramco annuitants, retirees, Brats and business contacts turned out at the National Aquarium in Baltimore, Md., in October for the third annual retiree reception and dinner hosted by the Washington, D.C., office of Aramco Services Company. The event was part of the company’s program to help maintain the strong connection between Saudi Aramco and its retirees.

Good Morning Ladies and Gentleman! I have to say, it is early….you can tell this was not planned by college students- because we would never organize anything at this hour! Regardless, I am both honored and humbled by this opportunity to share a few minutes with you this morning, representing not only Elon University but all of the universities selected for the President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.
This was one of my favorite dishes, perhaps because I was allowed to help Sitto stuff the light green Lebanese squash harvested from our garden. Sitto would even let me try to core it using one of the corers my mother had made from brass tubing.
1 can olive oil, 1 ½ t garlic powder, ½ bottle soy sauce, 1 t pepper, 6 drops Tabasco, 4 t parsley, ¾ olive oil can filled with water, ½ t ginger. Blend in blender and marinate steak or roast overnight.

It was hard to believe how fast the time was flying when the third day of the reunion arrived. Among the day's activities were the Tennis Tournament, a continuation of the Social and Duplicate Bridge Tournaments and the Sideline Exhibits, or just a day of relaxation and beautification in preparation for the evening semi-formal banquet dinner.
With talk of hurricanes headed towards the south-east coast, it was not surprising that the weather was spotty at best. But with some stroke of luck, Monday's weather made way for both the golf and tennis tournaments.
