The Greene County Retired Educators’ Association kicked off its first meeting September 12, 2012. The retirees were excited and eager to get back to the business of assisting at school activities and many other prescribed community involvements. Some agenda items discussed at the meeting were as follows: The importance of voting in support of the September 18th Amendment and its impact on the state’s budget. An overview of the Disrict meeting was given to inform members of the need to recruit other members to keep large numbers in our fight to keep funding and medical coverage at an efficient level. The sub-committee for the constitutional revision was put in place for constitutional up-dates. Members were urged to focus on getting their hours for community service immediately to be ready when needed. Our association will be focusing on providing can goods for desrving families and helping schools in project SOAR. A consultant from WellCard Health Discount Card shared some valuable information with the retirees in regard to some possibly discount saving on durg prices, doctor visits, eye care and other areas.

Greene County retired educators attended the district 3 meeting at Northport Civic Center in large numbers on Wednesday,
August 8, 2012. The local president, Mrs. Wabbington, was very grateful to all members who were able to attend this meeting.
We salute the district 3 director, Mrs. Carol Abernathy for her hard work in planning for this event. The session was well organized and very informative for all retirees. Information was shared by AERA President, Mr. John Paul Jones on the critical need for positive votes in the September 18, 2012 voting to permit the state to borrow funds from the oil money and not money from the education trust fund. The report from the State Office was given by Ms. Janice Charlesworth regarding the decline in membership among the retirees. We are all getting ready to do some serious recruitting this year.
Hats off to Mrs. Alma W. Jones who is planning to retire from her current position. Greene County salutes Mrs.
Jones and we express our sincere thanks to you for your service to the children, teachers and all the citizens of Greene County. We are looking forward to a very fruitful year in performing our mission in making life more productive for our boys, girls and citizens in Greene County.
Sincerely,
Abraham Kennard, Vice President
