FROM THE CHAIR
From the Chair:
Well, in the end retired educators DID finally get a thirteenth check. You should see it in your checking account this fall. This term always bothers me as in NO WAY does it equal a regular retirement check; it is misleading and degrading. Nevertheless, members prevailed in lobbying when a COLA wasn't forthcoming and now at least there is some small amount granted. This only serves to remind us that fall elections are soon upon us. If we can't change minds, we need to change faces! Look for friends of education in all aspects.
While we have been experiencing a wet summer, I trust you are taking the time to be good to yourself whether spending extra time with the grandkids, traveling, visiting interesting sites, just relaxing with a good book, or indulging in your personal pleasures.Take time to rejuvenate. You deserve it!
