retiree-luncheon-ho.jpg Retirees Club Annual Luncheon

CenterPoint Energy Retiree’s Club hosted their annual luncheon for 350 retirees from the Greater Houston area. The event provided a volunteer opportunity for retirees to create toiletrie bags for the Star of Hope.

Community Relations staff members also assisted attendees with the navigation of the new retirees and CNP Cares websites. In addition, retirees were able to sign on to the CNP Cares site and create their profiles, so they can enter their personal volunteer time.

Welcome Patty Jensen to MARS Board

Capture.JPGRetiree Patty Jensen recently joined the MARS Board.  She worked for CenterPoint Energy for 37 years, retiring in 2015. 

Patty knew MARS was something she wanted to participate in after retirement because of the great things they accomplish.  She participates in Feed My Starving Children, Bridging and volunteered for the Don D. Jordan BBQ and also enjoys the social events, such as the boat cruise, holiday party, picnics and attending plays.

Patty has organized a team for the 9th Annual MN Brain Tumor 5K walk taking place May 20, 2018.  You can sponsor Patty's team by following this link and searching for Patty's Pacers: https://wizathon.com/walktoendbraintumors-mn/

“I absolutely love retirement; I stay very busy. I love getting out for a walk and have taken up pickle ball now too. It is my favorite activity and it is a great way to get my steps in every day.”
