2019 Fall Social
The Clay County Retired Teachers Association held their Fall Social on Thursday, October 24th at the 4-H Fairgrounds building. The meeting was called to order by President Anna Long. Following the Pledge, Anna introduced the Wabash Valley Strings – Allison Hanson, Vicky Eaton, Bill Robison and Dawn Kellar-Doll – who played their Dulcimers while we dined. Paul Sinders offered a prayer and then retired teachers, spouses and associate members enjoyed a delicious chicken/noodle dinner prepared by Connie Sheehan and Julia Hoffa.

Following dinner, President Anna introduced our guest speaker, President of Indiana Retired Teachers Association, Barry Conrad who talked to us concerning matters of the association. Secretary Karen Boyce read minutes from the spring social. Committee chairs gave their reports: Membership and Legislative - Odena Harper; Public Relations - Janella Knierim; Community Service - Sherri Hughes; Foundation - Beth Meuser.
