University Archives contains many UMRA documents.  One of the earliest was created with one of the  most common tools of the trade of the early 1980's. The 22 page, typewritten (remember those?) pdf document is titled: "PDF icon umra_history_1976-1983_by_e_gerald.pdf." It is very interesting reading.  Read online or download a copy.

Spring 2017 Reserve a parking space!

Parking reservations are now available for UMRA luncheon meetings  

Because some UMRA members have encountered a full parking ramp when attempting to attend a luncheon, UMRA has negotiated the opportunity to reserve parking spaces in the East River Road Ramp.

To make a reservation, you will need to inform Judy Leahy Grimes at the same time you make your luncheon reservation by email or phone (Parking cannot be reserved on line at this time). Tell her you will also need a parking space, so she can reserve one for you.

To access your reserved space, you must enter the ramp from the East River Road entrance between 10 a.m. and 12 noon (when a PST attendant will be present). Identify yourself as an UMRA member who has requested a reservation. The usual parking fees and discount coupons apply.

This is a pilot program, just for the remainder of the meetings this spring, after which PTS and UMRA will evaluate how well it has worked. Thank you to PTS for providing this opportunity.

Again, to make a reservation, contact Judy Leahy Grimes (jleahy4654@aol.com or 651-698-4387) on or before the Thursday preceding the luncheon.
