The Carroll County Retired Teachers Association met Sept. 21 at Pat’s Place. Lunch was catered by Donna Parish, who prepared the meal and the fall decor for the tables.
Cassandra McBurney, president of CCRTA, called the meeting to order. First, the club recognized new retiree Debbie Cull. She talked about where she taught and for how many years. CCRTA presented her with a Kentucky Retired Teachers Association pin.
The next item of business was the approval of a meeting schedule for the 2012-2013 year. A slate of officers was also approved. The officers are Cassandra McBurney, president and treasurer; Pat Perkins, vice president; and Velma Hunt, secretary.
The members present volunteered for three committees — membership, legislative and health/insurance. There is still a need for members on the legislative committee. Any retired educator interested in serving on this committee should contact one of the officers.
Forms were handed out for the volunteer of the year award.
The grandparent of the year essay contest was discussed, but no one volunteered to chair this project. If there is a retired teacher who would like to oversee this project, call one of the officers as soon as possible.
The members were also given a fact sheet about KRTA and a handout detailing the KRTA legislative program.
Member Margaret Walker, known for the work she does with Special Olympics, had a request. During the week it is difficult to get everyone transported to Madison, Ind. for the activities they participate in. She is in need of drivers. If anyone can help, contact her.
McBurney said CCRTA is grateful to the 21 people who either sent in their dues by mail or appeared in person to pay them.
The next meeting will be at 11:30 a.m. Oct. 26 at General Butler State Resort Park. The club will meet in the dining room for lunch and go upstairs for our meeting. The agenda for this meeting will be health and insurance.
