St. John's University Retirees Association
St. John’s University Retirees Association Spring Luncheon
A healthy lifestyle, underscored with a culinary demonstration, was the main serving at the St. John’s Retirees Association’s luncheon Wednesday, May 4, 2016 at the Queens Campus with “Cardiac Chef” Dr. Kevin Marzo of Winthtrop University Hospital as teacher.
Dr. Marzo, Chief of Cardiology at Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola, aided by his Wellness and Prevention Team promotes healthy living for individuals of all ages and drew the rapt attention of the retirees with a culinary demonstration. This lifestyle is the core of Marzo’s philosophy, guiding his principles and practices as a medical professional.
The St. John’s University Retirees Association was created to allow former St. John’s employees to stay connected to each other and the University. Membership is open to all employees who have retired from St. John’s. Spouses of retired employees are also eligible for membership.
Rev. James F. Dorr, C.M. ’79GEd serves as Moderator.
The Division of Institutional Advancement and the Office of Human Resources work closely to ensure that our retirees remain active participants within the University community. All members are invited to take advantage of a variety of benefits designed to enhance their lives socially, culturally and educationally. Those benefits, which are coordinated by the Office of Gift Planning of the Division of Institutional Advancement, include:
- A variety of social events, including two annual complimentary luncheons, traditionally held on the Queens campus during the months of April and October, and an annual day trip to an interesting location within the greater New York metropolitan area.

There are also additional benefits for retirees that are administered by the Office of Human Resources.
