70 Years of Serving the Teachers of Hamilton County ,Ohio
Greetings from Michael L. Ward, 2018 Hamilton County Retired Teachers Association President.
I look forward to serving the retired teachers of Hamilton County Ohio. The HCRTA Board Members and I ,are developing strategies that we hope will make the HCRTA a model for other retired teachers associations in 2018. 2017 was the 70th anniversary of the founding of HCRTA in 1947. We celebrated the anniversary in the Spring of 2017. For 2018 we will be having an event at Sharon Woods Heritage Village, that will combine our continuing fund raising for the restoration of the Meyer's School House and a reception for newly retiring teachers of Hamilton County.The event is scheduled for April 26. 2018 at the Sharon Woods Heritage Village. More information will be published in coming months. We are continuing to implement community out reach programs that will involve HCRTA members in different volunteer activities. We plan on once again, offering our members excellent travel opportunities, local historical seminars and programs, HCRTA College scholarships for high school seniors, and our popular luncheons. We will be updating our HCRTA Newsletter, to bring our members the latest information related to retirement topics. Besides this website, we are also on Facebook, in order to offer insights, information, and an opportunity to get feed back and suggestions. Please "Friend HCRTA" on Facebook!
