Our new President, Roberta Fuller, warmly welcomed the 50 attendees to our annual “THWTB” luncheon at the Pepper Mill restaurant in Carnarvon.
After introducing members of the Executive, Past Pres. Wayne Cooper and 2nd V.P. Cheryl Cohoon, our tireless Social Committee: Marg Valentine, Betty Mark, Sue Session and our Goodwill Ambassador Marge Baldry, she gave a brief outline of upcoming events.
Betty Mark introduced six freshly-minted retirees, who between them share 181 years of classroom experience (see photo). Thanks to each of you for your years of dedicated service. Congratulations on your retirement, and welcome to your new life!
After a sumptuous lunch buffet, Roberta thanked Wayne for all of his hard work on our behalf during eight years on the Executive (wearing a variety of hats). Names were then drawn for the door prize of gift certificates to the Chickadee Luncheon to be held on Tuesday January 24th. The happy recipients were Pat Bain, Rosemary Mallotte, Leona Carter and Kathy Adams.
Several interesting suggestions have been made for future social gatherings and events so we’ll keep you posted through the newsletter, the website and eblasts. Thanks to everyone for an enjoyable afternoon. ~ by Cheryl Cahoon
