"Making Connections That Matter?


Dear YRTA Members,

Thank you for the wonderful attendance for our first meeting in September. Our community service on September 17th helped many students at Seaford Elementary School and we have been invited to the school any time during the school year. Your generosity is a reflection of your dedication to the students of YCSD. As members of YRTA we are taking our motto to heart, "Making Connections That Matter?. We continue to look for ways to serve the community. Please think about other ways that we can help and bring your suggestions to the next Executive Board meeting in February.

I was able to attend the VRTA meeting in Blackstone October 6. The meeting was held at the Blackstone Conference and Retreat Center. One of the highlights of the meeting was the presentation by Robert P. Schultze, VRS Director. He summarized the 2014 fiscal year investments. According to the Director the VRS achieved a 15.7% return on investments for the fiscal year, beating the assumed rate of 7percent. The portfolio added $9 billion to the portfolio in investment gains. This gives our total market value $66.0 billion. The good news is that The General Assembly is on schedule to fully fund the VRS rates.

Our fall meeting will be held at Zion United Methodist Church located at 2109 Seaford Road. Our meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 19, 2014 at 11:30 A.M. I encourage you to come early to socialize before the meeting starts. You will be contacted by our telephone calling committee. They will ask if you are attending the meeting and tell you about the lunch menu. The menu includes: Grilled Chicken, beverages, a salad, homemade Marconi & Cheese, mixed vegetables, rolls and pineapple cake at a cost of $15.00. If you have not been contacted by Thursday, November 13 please contact Sheila Rogers (sheilaanddon@cox.net or phone 826-4286) let us know if you are coming. Our speaker for this program is Chad Green, Author and native of York County.

If you did not attend our first meeting in September you can still pay your dues at the November meeting. Dues are $11.00 for local and District dues + $15.00 for State. Please contact our Treasurer, Kathy Young if you have questions about dues. Kathy?s contact information: kyoung314@cox.net/ ph. 872-7096. We will also collect canned food items at this meeting to donate to the Food Bank of the Peninsula. Thank you in advance for your contributions. If you are unable to attend please send your canned food items by a friend. As you know the number of people in need of the Food Bank services continues to increase in our area.

There are many opportunities for you take part in YRTA programs this year, and I hope you will sign up at our November 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, read a poem, or share the history of YCSD, you are very important in "Making Connections That Work?. Some members signed up to bring items for the November Raffle basket. Please contact Rosemarie Sharadin and Kay Brooks if you want to help. We also need members to serve on the Nominating Committee. Please let me know if you are interested in serving.

Finally, Candi Shinner from YCSD has asked to speak to us about the need for volunteers at elementary schools. She is Director for Elementary Instruction. Candi will take a few minutes before lunch to talk about the volunteer program.

I look forward to seeing you on November 19 at Zion United Methodist Church as we celebrate fellowship, community service, and enjoy a great meal.



Veverlyn A. Lee, President
