The Texas Retired Teachers Association of Clay County met April 16 at the Henrietta City Hall.
Patty Taylor, Wichita Falls Alzheimer’s Association Associate Director presented the program, “It’s a Matter of Memory.” She explained how to recognize signs of Alzheimer’s and gave comfort by ruling out many behaviors of “normal” senior citizens. The following were present to enjoy the informative program: Howard Beeler, Murry Don Dawson, Doyle and Leota Edwards, Lucille Glasgow, Pat Lawrence, Pan McKay, Doris Payne and Howard Raeke. A brief business meeting was conducted by Dawson in the absence of Carol Hale, president.
TRTA is the largest and most powerful organization in Texas to representing the welfare of retired school employees. It is a legislative action and social organization. Present membership is 70,000 of the 280,000 Texas Retirement System annuitants. It would be even more effective if more retirees joined TRTA.
The May TRTA meeting will be a reception to honor Clay County’s retiring school personnel. The reception will be held on May 21, at 4:30 p.m. at the Henrietta ISD Administration Building on Crafton Street. Refreshments and fellowship will be served.
