Greetings YRTA Members!

Can you believe that August is about to end, and September is upon us?  Even though we are not decorating classrooms, and attending meetings, we are reminded of the beginning of a new school year.  Have you seen the aisles of school supplies in the stores?  I can hardly resist making purchases! Not only is this a sign of a new school year, but a new year for the York Retired Teachers Association. What a beginning it has been already!  The YRTA hosted coffee and doughnuts on Monday, August 20, 2012 at Tabb High School for approximately 48 new teachers, and numerous current York County School District employees.  It was great to welcome the new teachers and to visit with friends from the past.  It certainly brought back memories of my first days in YCSD!

The Executive Board met in June to begin scheduling and organizing events for this year.  We are very excited as we believe we have some interesting and fun things planned.  Our first meeting will be held at the Riverwalk Restaurant in Yorktown on Wednesday, September 19, 2012 at 11:30 A.M. The cost for lunch will be $20.00 which includes an entrée, beverage, and dessert, as well as tax and gratuity. Menu choices will be crab cakes, and Chicken Caesar Salad.  If you have not been contacted by September 14, please contact Roberta DePollar at 757-898- 0644, or me at 757-566-2205 (iteachyms@yahoo.com) to let us know you are coming. Dates and locations for future meetings are listed at the end of this letter.  We hope you will find each luncheon and program enjoyable. I will be sharing more about upcoming programs and activities with you at our first meeting.

As has been our tradition in the past, we will collect school supplies at our first meeting.  The Executive Board selected Magruder Elementary School to be the recipient of items this year. If you would like to preview suggestions for needed materials, go to http://www.edline.net/pages/MES and click on the link to their requested supply lists. Please consider making a contribution of an item or two in support of the educational program at this school! 

The fall meeting of the VRTA (the state level meeting) will be held October 8-9 at the Virginia Methodist Assembly Center in Blackstone, VA.  Dara Dawn, the senior legislative director for NRTA, will be the keynote speaker.  I do not have registration deadlines at this time, but I will pass that along as I receive it.  You may also go online to http://.www.vrta.org for the latest information.  The District B luncheon meeting will be held November 13, 2012 at the Chesapeake. I will continue to update you on the details of this meeting.  It would be wonderful to have representation from YRTA for both events.

If you have not paid your dues, you may mail those to Myrtle Soles, or you may pay them at our first meeting.  I have enclosed the dues form for your use.  There are many opportunities for you to be a part of YRTA, and I hope you will sign up at our first meeting for one of these.  Whether you volunteer to greet members at one of the meetings, lead the group in the pledge to the flag, assist with assembling a basket for our ways and means committee to auction, call members, or share  the history of YCSD, you are very important in “making connections that work”!  Your help and support is greatly appreciated.

I look forward to seeing you on September 19th   at the Riverwalk Restaurant as we begin our celebration of a new year for YRTA with fun, fellowship, and enjoyable meals. 


Best regards,


Bev Woodard, President
