Submitted By Gene Dias
Recently at its Fall luncheon meeting at FremontÕs Spin-A-Yarn Restaurant, 100 members of the California Retired Teachers Association #91 of Fremont, Union City and Newark honored eight of its new octogenarians and five new nonagenarians. The octogenarians are Beth Booth, Caroline Johnston, Ann Laguna, Fay Miles, Betty Pacheco, Patricia ÒPatÓ Simon, Marilyn ÒLynnÓ Smith and Nick Stratigopoulos. The nonagenarians are Bert ÒBillÓ Ball, Shirley Buschke, Lydian Hubach, Betty Roa and Mary Russell. The honorees were presented with a certificate and a potted plant by Membership Chairperson Muriel Rodrigues. Financial Secretary Judy Molander gave a mini-history of each honoree.
Once again, Piecemakers Quilt Guild of Alameda County donated a quilt and matching pillow sham to help raise funds for active TeachersÕ Mini-Grant Fund. Winner of the vibrant, colorful donation was Beth Booth.
Members meet four times throughout the year at various restaurants in the Tri-City area. Any retired teacher or retired education administrator is invited to become a member of CalRTA #91.
