At their June meeting, the California Retired Teachers’ Association Division 71 (CalRTA #71) will hear from fellow member Kathy Symons about her travels last year to Pakistan. Along with friend Joanna Liang, Kathy visited Pakistan with an eye to that country’s art and architecture. As a retiree from the faculty of Rio Hondo College’s art department, that is her main focus as a traveler.
