Retirement System Holds Open House

The Cambridge Retirement System held its open house on Monday, May 13th.  The Retirement Office has been in a new location at 100 CambridgePark Drive since June 2012.  We had hoped to have an open house in October of last year, but this was delayed by Hurricane Sandy.  We had over 50 members and retirees of the system come to our office for the event.  It was terrific to have the opportunity to meet with some of our retirees who attended along with their friends and family.
