The Greenville Public Library is working with the Darke County Chapter of Public Employee Retirees, Inc. (PERI) to arrange an informational seminar that will be held on three different dates to address concerns and problems involving PERI medical insurance and prescription drug benefits, including questions about their reimbursement funds. The seminar is free and open to both PERI members and nonmembers, who are eligible to retire under OPERS, which is the Ohio Public Employees' Retirement System.

Thanks to the permission of John Vehre, Library Director, as well as the collaboration of Deb Cameron, Library Special Activities Coordinator, and Warren Richards, Library IT Specialist and Technical Advisor, the seminar will be held on the third floor in the Library's boardroom, which is handicap accessible, on the following dates and times: Tuesday, August 9 from 1 to 3 p.m.; Friday, August 12 from 1 to 3 p.m.; and Tuesday, August 16 from 10 am to 12 noon.

According to the Board of Directors of the PERI Darke County Chapter, holding the same seminar on different dates will make it easier for more PERI members and nonmembers to attend, which they otherwise might not be able to do because of doctors' visits or some other preplanned activities. In addition, the Board agreed that reservations for the seminar are not required, which will make their attendance even easier.

During the seminar, Warren Richards will use his technical skills to transfer videos onto a 70 inch television screen that will feature important informational data that was sent by Steve Toth, who is the Retiree Representative on the OPERS Board of Directors. In an effort to address the concerns of PERI retirees regarding their insurance benefits, Toth requested that the videos be shown before he gives his follow up presentation to the PERI Darke County Chapter at their meeting on October third when he will be their guest speaker.
