Ongoing Activities

The Association helps facilitate retirees in organizing activities.  Here's a few activities that are ongoing:


A group of retired biking enthusiasts will start meeting regularly starting on Wednesday, March 25th at 1 pm sharp. Meet the group across from the Children's Fishing Pond at McCormick Park. We will ride the Milwaukee Trail-Target Range-Fort Missoula Museum and back (round trip of about 17 miles). Those who wish shorter rides could turn around at any point on the trip. The group will switch to the morning hours once it starts to get warmer. Contact Rustem Medora at or Lily Eidswick at for further information.


Lily and Jack Eidswick would like to invite interested UM retirees to join them for Mahjong every Monday afternoon. For information and directions to their home, call Lily Eidswick at 406.542.0603 or email her at

Highway Cleanup

Unless notified otherwise, the highway cleanup group will meet on the first Monday after April 15th and the second Monday in October each year.  Based on that, we will meet again on October 12, 2015 and April 20, 2015.  For more information, contact Bob Pfister at  or Rustem Medora at  The group is looking for new members.

Active for Life Class

Retirees who wish to take an exercise class (Active for Life) designed for those over 50 should call Sonja Tysk at 243.2804.  Campus Recreation offers an additional 65 group fitness classes a week, including dance, cycling, yoga, Pilates and more.

You must be a paid member of the Campus Recreation Center (see Benefits).

Opportunities to Volunteer on Campus

Retirees may wish to serve the University campus by volunteering their time.  Your institutional knowledge, expertise, and energy can continue to serve the University in meaningful ways.  Some volunteer opportunities are for one-time and annual events, and some opportunties are available on an ongoing basis.  Check out the opportunities to volunteer!
