President's Message

By Susan Phillips

As I write my last article as President of District 34 I just want to say how much I ‘ve enjoyed  meeting RTO/ERO  members.Everyone I’ve met in person,talked to on the phone or corresponded with by e-mail has been friendly and polite.It has been a pleasure working with the executive for the past two years and I want to thank them for all their hard work attending meetings,preparing and hosting events and acting as executive members and committee chairpersons.

I would like to commend our members who braved the elements of this particularly harsh winter and came out to our many events.Our  50th birthday party was a huge success and I would like to thank the 50th birthday party committee for all their hard work setting up the venue,games and solicitation all the wonderful prizes.A good time was had by all.

Now that Spring is here, those of you lucky enough to have escaped this past winter and all the brave souls who endured will notice the many events we have planned for you .Our popular Hava Javas,walks with Ann,plays ,musicals and the symphony,lectures,golf,  Trivia, the AGM and Spring Luncheon are all continuing.We do subsidise our events,but this being our 50th year you will notice a large subsidy in some of our events.Hopefull this will translate into  larger numbers in attendance.If you have any ideas that would be of interest and benefit our members,please let us know or if you have any questions or concerns,please feel free to contact me or any member on the executive.

This year we held  our Retirement Planning Workshop on March 27.If you know of any educators who are retiring please tell them about our organization.We have a pdf  file we can send to you that anyone thinking of joining RTO/ERO would find interesting.
