Now the women had their own organization, they had a name for it I forget what it was now.
Yeah Forestettes? They're still going?
As far as I've heard yes.
Well these were gals that worked at the Lab and then there were spouses of the guys that worked at the Lab, and retirees, women. And they had their little monthly things and that. They did a lot of volunteer work and the men did too. I drove for the Red Cross, blood pickups. One of the guys that worked here, can't think of his name right now, I don't know how many gallons of blood he donated. They won't take blood from him anymore, he reached that age. I'm  years old and I don't look that old, but I am, and I'm in fairly good health. But I did have a Myocardial Infarction while I worked here and one of the things that was my favorite was the Lab had arrangements with the University for using their workout---the stuff that they have in the Natatorium---and so I could go down there and take some annual leave and workout. That was very helpful for me, didn't cost me anything, and it was good.
