Retired Teachers meet


POMEROY — The Meigs County Retired Teachers Association met March 21, 2019, at the Meigs Senior Citizens Center for a noon luncheon.

The president, Gay Perrin, welcomed the group and had the pledge to the flag. Linda Lear had devotions and read “A Child’s View of a Thunderstorm” and “Twinkies and Root Beer” and had prayer before the meal.

The secretary and treasurer reports were given and approved. The scholarship and Habitat for Humanity amounts at present were given. The group was reminded that dues are due.

The president reminded the group of the need for applicants for the scholarship to be given by the group. She thanked the members for their donations for the Meigs High School Care By the Stairs program to help students in need.

The Ohio Retired Teachers Association has a statewide project of supporting Habitat for Humanity. Bob Beegle told of the one that is to be built in Middleport in May. We are to bring donations of money or household items at our April and May meetings.

The group was entertained with a program of song and dance by the Meigs High School cast of “Guys and Dolls” which will be presented at the high school in April. The group performed several lively numbers and shows how talented this group is. They are directed by Amy Perrin and Garrett Riffle.

The group remembered the passing of members Michael Winebrenner and Joan Corder and of Mildred Bailey, a one-time member who had moved to Florida.

Door prizes were Connie Gilkey and Gay Perrin.

The next meeting will be April 25 at the Wild Horse Cafe with Mike Gerlach as the speaker.
