School retirees make plans
The Wilson County Retired School Personnel (WCRSP) hosted Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA) District 20 officers and committee chairs at the Floresville Event Center on June 7.
More than 100 retired school personnel representing 14 local TRTA units came together to make plans for 2012-13. District 20 President Kay Below arranged training sessions for each office and committee.
After a tasty lunch catered by Lazy J Bar-B-Que, keynote speaker, TRTA’s state second vice president Fran Plemmons, entertained the group with humorous predictions about the future and then made the serious statement that retirees are facing a battle to retain the Teacher Retirement System as it exists today. All retired educators and concerned citizens are encouraged to visit the TRTA webpage at www.trta.org to remain informed about legislative issues.
WCRSP appreciates the support we received from our members and community. Volunteers spent Wednesday evening setting up the facility; arrived early to serve breakfast, which included a donation of cinnamon rolls from Kolodziej’s Produce in Poth; acted as hosts and hostesses; donated door prizes; and stayed to clean up.
Anyone retired from a school district is invited to join TRTA and our local unit of WCRSP.
For more information, contact incoming President Bill Gleeson at 830-391-1547 or First Vice President Priscilla Kincaid at 830-393-4629.
If you can’t wait to participate in WCRSP, we have a deal for you! WCRSP has invited Jose Aceves, AARP Driver Safety instructor, to teach a class Wednesday, July 11, from 1-5 p.m. in the Floresville Administration Building, at 1200 Fifth St. This four-hour class promises to sharpen driving skills and may save money on car insurance. Contact your insurance provider to see if this class qualifies you for savings.
AARP is honoring all educators, active or retired, during July and August by charging only $5 for the class. Spouses of educators receive the same rate. AARP members may pay $12 and nonmembers pay $14 for the class. The driver safety class is limited to 25 participants, so call Lydia Martinez at 830-216-7606 to register.
