Officers Meeting Update for 2018-2019

Shirley Aaron posted this concerning the upcoming CCERA year:

The officers for the Chambers County Retired Teachers Association met today (July 11, 2018) and planned the schedule for the 2018-2019 school year.
The first meeting and lunch will be September 21 at the Cotton Duck at 12:00 CST. All meetings will be held at this location. I’d like to invite all retired Chambers County teachers to attend the first meeting and to join the local association.
We have some interesting programs planned, and we’re hoping that you’ll participate. The October(10/19/18) meeting will focus on health and wellness screening. Come and get your flu shot, along with other health benefits.
I believe that you’ll be inspired by the Service Projects that we’ve planned for the year. They are: Giving school supplies, providing hygiene products to students/schools, contributions to Valley Haven, volunteer work for teachers and classrooms, Teacher Appreciation to two teachers each time that we meet, and scholarships to several 2019 Chambers County graduates.
As you can see, we’re actively involved in the educational process in Chambers County, and we want you to be a part of that success story.
Please join us on Friday, September 21!
