The California Retired Teachers’ Association Division 71 (CalRTA #71) will be given a rare look behind the scenes at Arcadia’s race track, thanks to speaker Pete Siberell, Director of Community Services and Special Projects at Santa Anita Park. The highlight of Siberell’s presentation will be news of the Breeders’ Cup—an international event that is returning to Santa Anita Park in early November with horses from around the world and special activities.
Siberell will speak at the Retired Teachers’ luncheon meeting on Friday, February 10 at Our Savior Lutheran Church, in Fellowship Hall, 512 W. Duarte Rd., Arcadia 91007. The hall is located behind the church sanctuary, and ample parking is available. At 11:00 am, doors open and guests arrive, with the business meeting at 11:30, lunch to follow at 12:00 pm, and at 12:45 pm, Siberell to top off the meeting with race track news.
A box lunch will be provided by Panera. On the luncheon menu is a choice of sandwiches. Choose one:: Deli Turkey, Mahi Mahi, or Mediterranean Veggie. Each sandwich is accompanied by potato chips and a chocolate chip cookie. Coffee and water will be provided. Guests are welcome to come enjoy the luncheon, to hear Pete Siberell’s presentation, and to learn of volunteer opportunities at the Breeders’ Cup.
