LANCASTER — The local chapter of retired teachers has been recognized in a variety of ways.
On Oct. 8 at the 51st PASR Convention held in Lancaster, the Wayne Chapter of the Pennsylvania Association of School Retirees was recognized for the exceptionally broad array of services that its members provide to others living in their communities.
During the past year, the members of Wayne Chapter raised and contributed monies to help fund special projects in their public schools and engaged in additional projects, as volunteers, to serve the youth in their communities.
The chapter members also increased their giving of monies to assist school retirees who are hospitalized, homebound or confined in assisted living facilities, and they devoted much of their time engaged in efforts to combat and alleviate hunger in their communities.
PASR's Executive Director Richard C. Rowland commended Wayne Chapter for its accomplishments.
"Our organization's mission, to serve others in need and help one another enjoy retirement, is clearly in your hearts. You are certainly benefiting your communities with all that you are doing to serve the needs of public education employees, the youth, the infirmed, and the hungry. We all know that in doing these great things, you are helping each other better enjoy the retirements you earned from your public school service."
