Retired Teachers Association plans for the new year


Fourteen leaders of the Fayette County Retired Teachers Association, a local organization nearly 130 members strong, met on Jan. 7 in Grace United Methodist Church’s Fellowship Hall to plan the coming year’s meetings. Within 1 1/2 hours, the group—buoyed by the president’s homemade cranberry and banana breads and snack mix as well as a selection of beverages—had efficiently set up all six meetings’ worth of programs, plus the dates for three community service projects and three 50/50 drawings benefiting the scholarship fund. Entertainment was planned for two of the meetings. The first luncheon meeting for the general membership will be Thursday, Feb. 6, with meetings every other month thereafter. Shown at the head of the work table are (from left) FCRTA President Norma Kirby, Secretary Bob Mowrey, Vice President Karen Bernard and Treasurer Mary Sue Spengler.
