We have four luncheon meetings annually, meeting in the months of May, June, September, and October. These meetings are on the second Tuesday of the listed months and begin at 12 noon. During the summer, we sometimes have a pitch-in picnic gathering. We enjoy the fellowship of other educators and we keep current on legislative actions pertaining to our pension and issues relating to education. Retired public education teachers and administrators and those affiliated with education as active teachers, by spouse, past employment, or friends of education please join us!
