Darke County Retired Teachers Association Update

The DCRTA Executive Board held a socially-distanced meeting in the Greenville Park shelter house on Monday, August 10, to discuss our options at this time due to the continuing Covid-19 situation.  It was decided that all meetings and activities for the remainder of 2020 will be canceled and the board will meet again in January, 2021, to reevaluate the situation.  

It was also decided that collection of 2021 dues will be suspended, and we ask instead that members consider donating to our scholarship fund.  Since we were not able to do anymore fundraisers for our scholarship fund this year, the fund was depleted when we awarded the 3 scholarships this spring.  Our Treasurer, Charlene Foster, has more information about this in the upcoming newsletter.  

We also want to remember the passing of 5 of our members this year:  Fred Matix, Ed Gruber, Kathy Myers, Ramona Nickol, and Marjorie Praekle.  We will conduct a memorial service for them when we have our first general meeting in 2021.  

When you receive your newsletter, please read through it carefully for more important information.  The DCRTA Executive Board members are keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers and hope the rest of 2020 finds you happy and healthy!
