INGOMAR — Members in attendance at the Sept. 12, Preble County Retired Teachers Association were welcomed by President Harold Niehaus, who conducted a short business meeting. Six Preble County teachers retired in 2017, and were invited to join the group.
Members were reminded to continue to accumulate volunteer hours, and to bring estimated total for 2017 to the November meeting. Phyllis Marling sparked discussion with her information on phone and computer scams. Rosalie Doran explained the “Tools for Schools” program, which provides school supplies to Preble County Schools. Volunteers offered to deliver the supplies to the nine elementary schools.
Kelley McChristy from STRS was our guest speaker, and explained that health benefits were much the same for 2018, and the health care system appears to be funded well into the future.
The next PCRTA luncheon will be on Nov. 14 at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Ingomar. The group will enjoy the National Trail Steel Drum Band and a Thanksgiving feast. All retired teachers and school personnel and their spouses are urged to attend. Newsletters are available at www.pcrta.org.
