PERI to Host Christmas Luncheon

Left to right are Shari Wolf, Steve and Dot Thornburg, Don Thompson, Joyce Harrison, and Mary Pipenger.
PERI will be traveling back to the good ole days when the "Country Strings Band" performs at their Christmas luncheon on Monday, December 4, 11:30 a.m. at the VFW on Ohio Street, Greenville. Lead by PERI member, Joyce Harrison, the band will enliven the Christmas Spirit with the toe tapping tunes of dulcimers and songs, fun and surprises that are planned to revive memories of holidays past but not forgotten. The group has been playing together for over fifteen years.

In addition to food, entertainment, surprises and fun, John DiPietro, who is the Representative of District Three, which includes eight PERI counties, including Darke, will be the guest speaker. He has been working closely with Steve Toth, who is a member of the Ohio Public Employees (OPERS) Board of Trustees. Both men have been instrumental in fighting the loss of COLA benefits, which was recently approved by OPERS but has as yet to be implemented. DiPietro will bring PERI members and other OPERS retirees up-to-date on the most recent efforts that are being done to stop the loss of their COLAS as well as other critical issues of which they need to be aware.

Open to PERI members, their guests, and Ohio Public Employee retirees who are eligible for membership, reservations for the luncheon meeting must be in no later than Wednesday, November 29 by calling Vivian Nieport, Attendance and Contact Chairman, at (937) 548-3961. PERI Members will be contacted as usual by the PERI calling committee.

While this meeting has been planned to be entertaining and fun, it is also an important and informative meeting that remains true to the PERI Mission of protecting and preserving OPERS pension funds and benefit programs that are in the best interest of all PERI members and OPERS eligible members.
