UMG retirees and alumni gather for their annual luncheon

The United Media Guild hosted about 40 retiree members at its annual Retiree/Alumni Luncheon Nov. 28 at Lombardo’s in St. Louis.

It was great to see former UMG business representative Mary Casey and former UMG office at the event, along with many of our former officers — including Tim O’Neil, Denise Fleming, Virginia Hicks Gilbert, Kevin Madden, Theresa Cobb and Ed Cirar.

Semi-retired Post-Dispatch columnist Bill McClellan attended and reminisced with former newsroom colleagues such as Michael Sorkin, Roy Malone, Bill Smith, Barry Gilbert, Alan Fredman and Geoffrey Dubson

Retiree/alumni membership is open to all former UMG members. Contact office Rachel Zaron ( if you are interested.
