Thank you, Kathy, for taking care of things during my "vacation" to Texas. We enjoyed the warm weather and...you get the idea. But now it's February and things are brewing for Lincoln County Area Retired School Personnel.
First we have a 2016 planning meeting at Krumbly Burger at 10:30 a.m. on February 11. If you plan on joining us, please park on the north side of the building to keep the main lot open for lunch traffic. (Thank you!) Be thinking of what you want to see in the way of programs and capers for the coming year. We had a pretty good brainstorming session at the last meeting, but maybe you've thought of something since then. If you are unable to join us, be sure to share you thoughts and ideas with someone who is coming to the meeting. Kathy, Jane, Maudean, and I are always happy for your input.
Next, Legislative Day is February 17. Please mark that day on your calendar and plan to join us. We will go by bus again to Jefferson City where we meet with the big group, then divide up and call on our regional legislators, then eat a delicious chicken dinner provided by MRTA for all attendees (us), members of the House, Senate, and staff. We will return by bus, usually by the middle of the afternoon. It's a fast paced day, but well worth it! I'd really like to fill our own bus, or at least make it necessary to have two buses from our region. Let me know soon if you are planning on going...
Jim's emails have started, so the session is heating up.
There are some 5,000 last years members who have not paid their dues for this year. If you are one, don't forget to get it in the mail soon. Also, Jane Allen is accepting the $5 for local dues. We all pay insurance. This is the cheapest insurance that I know of.
Let me, or one of the other officers know if you have any questions.
