One thought on “Remembering Irene Busterd

  • Dr.Bustard was a key person in the history of The Calvin Park afternoon Book Group when she responded to my inquiry in 1978 regarding the formation of a book group in the library. This Book Group has been meeting ever since then, on the first Tuesday of every month, with a break during the Pandemic.
    We are grateful to Dr Bustard for her generosity and vision. By offering the space in the library, a group of interested and interesting people get together once a month to discuss our book of the month. We have been doing this for 46 years.
