The Wayne County Retired Teachers Association met on Monday, January 10, 2022 at Bucket’s Restaurant in Collinwood. Members present were: Dean Stegall, Linda Bowling, Marsha Cole, Frances and Richard Rains, Suzanne Roberts, and Katy Wright.
President Stegall led the Pledge of Allegiance and Mr. Rains asked the blessing on lunch. The business meeting was held after lunch. Mrs. Bowling gave the devotion, titled “Chirpy.” Mrs. Wright read the minutes of the last meeting, then gave the Treasurer’s report.
The Association has received several donations to the Scholarship Fund. There were general donations by Jerry Pigg and Susan Myers, a donation in memory of Jerry Tatum by Cynthia Tatum, a donation in honor of Katy Wright by Elizabeth and Jacob Beal, donations in memory of Roger Villines by Suzanne Roberts and Larry and Katy Wright, and a donation made in memory of Doris Lindsey by Dean Stegall. Mr. Bill Thrasher has been the liaison between the Association and the county high schools in regard to the annual scholarships, but he is currently unable to do it this year. Mrs. Stegall will contact the school counselors this year on this matter.
A get well card was signed by those present to be sent to Mr. Thrasher, and a sympathy card was signed to be sent to Mrs. Villines.
The TEA Spring Workshop will be held in March. Mrs. Wright, Mr. and Mrs. Rains, and Mrs. Stegall plan to attend.
The next meeting will be on March 7, 2022, at Dad’s Pizzeria in Waynesboro.
