Here’s some really good news!
First, I am happy to announce that in March our Executive Committee voted unanimously to award lifetime membership to several of our longtime annual members. Carol Bahniuk, Jocelyn Blood, Louise Coront, Alice Crockford, William Crockford, Elizabeth Evans, Jane Hebert, Jean Lawless, Eileen Madden, Margaret Thompson, and Rose Woturski are now lifetime members, having shown commitment to NEA, NJREA, and REACMC annually for several years. Congratulations to all of them!
Second, as we move toward the summer season, we are invigorated by the enthusiasm that has been shown at our Business Meetings since October 2018. Our meetings have been well attended. Lots of information has been passed on to our members from our speakers and our community partners. I hope that you have taken advantage of everything that you can learn from coming out to the meetings, and that you will make time to bring a member friend and attend our next Business Meeting and Luncheon on Tuesday, May 21, 2019, at 11:00 AM at Avalon Links Restaurant. You won’t want to miss this event! We will hold elections, look at the proposed 2019-2020 budget, and take a vote regarding a dues increase to $10 per year in the future. We will receive Health Benefits updates from Jim Jameson who brings his extensive knowledge from NJEA’s Research Department. In addition, Beth Buonsante from the NJEA Government Relations Department will share breaking news from legislative circles. Moreover, we will be treated to some uplifting spring songs to be performed by the very talented Seven Mile Island Singers. The whole event will prove to be a great way for us to share some camaraderie and enjoy each other’s company before summer! I hope you will join us!
Third, and most importantly, thank you for being a supportive REACMC member! It makes everything we do to help one another so much more valuable when we know that our members are there, lending a hand when we need it. The Executive Committee serves at your pleasure; and, its members will continue to represent your interests as best we know how! Thank you for your support!
